What is a Traineeship?

A traineeship is an education and training programme with work experience. It is designed to give young people the skills and experience they need to help them progress into employment or onto an Apprenticeship.

Traineeships are an ideal opportunity for young people, aged 16 to 24, who are motivated to get a job but lack the skills and experience that employers are looking for.

If you have been unsuccessful when applying for an apprenticeship or other job due to a lack of skills and experience, then you are most likely be good candidates for a traineeship.

Traineeships have 3 core elements.

  • a high-quality work experience placement with an employer
  • work preparation training , provided by the training organisation
  • English and maths support, if required, provided by the training organisation

Traineeships last anything up to a maximum of 6 months with the content tailored to the needs of the business and the individual.

During the traineeship programme, you will also be able to access a range of Hull Training and Adult Education Services, such as careers advice, job search skills, CV writing and interview preparation. We also offer enrichment activities that will help you in life and work. Such as enterprise skills, money management, food hygiene, first aid and much more…
