Guidance for prospective trainees, employers and training providers on traineeships.

The Government are increasing the number of traineeships by investing over £126m to create more training opportunities and placements for young people.

A traineeship is a skills development programme that includes a work placement. It can last from 6 weeks up to 1 year, though most traineeships last for less than 6 months.

A procurement opportunity is being launched for providers to access additional funding to delivery 19-24 traineeships. Further information can be found in the traineeship news story.

Guidance and systems such as find a traineeship and the traineeship provider list will continue to be updated. These will be reviewed during September as the reformed and expanded programme launches and ongoing as traineeships are delivered. Links to all updated guidance will soon be made available on this page.
