Is a traineeship right for me?

How can we help? Please type your question below, or view all top rated FAQs.

Traineeships are ideal if you 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 likely to be a good candidate for a traineeship. You could be suitable if you are:

  • motivated to work
  • unemployed, or work fewer than 16 hours per week and have little work experience
  • aged between 16-24 and qualified below level 3

A traineeship is probably not right for you if you:

  • already have the skills and experience needed to find an apprenticeship or work
  • are 25 years old or older
  • are already employed
