What is a Traineeship?
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 traineeship is a really good option if you aren’t sure whether an apprenticeship will be the right thing for you. It will help you to experience the work of work through a placement, and also be supported with lots of other skills, especially English and Maths if you haven’t achieved those qualifications.
You can apply if you’re:
- eligible to work in England
- unemployed and have little or no work experience
- aged 16 to 24 and qualified below Level 3
- a work experience placement
- help with English and maths (if you need it)
You won’t be paid, but you may be given expenses for things like travel and meals
Where can I do a Traineeship in Exeter?
Exeter College offers Pre-apprenticeships (or Traineeships) for those who are not quite ready for an apprenticeship. Not only does the course allow you to gain invaluable work experience (100+ hours), but the team will help you brush up on key skills to help you secure an apprenticeship role – including support in additional Maths, English and IT tuition if required.
