A Traineeship is an introduction-level programme that combines a work placement with training, it helps to prepare young people for the world of work and supports with English and Mathematics if required.
Apprenticeships are available at Intermediate, Advanced and Higher/Degree levels, and are available in a wide range of employment sectors. The length of time that it takes to complete is dependent on the level and occupation. All Apprenticeships are real jobs so young people on the programme can earn a salary.
All Apprenticeship opportunities must be advertised on the National Apprenticeships Website https://www.gov.uk/apply-apprenticeship
Your son/daughter must be registered on this site to apply for apprenticeships not advertised through an agency or training provider.
Apprenticeship advice can also be sought through local Colleges.
