A traineeship is a personal development programme that aims to provide you with valuable work experience and also gain vital Maths and English qualifications.

Depending on your chosen career, we’ll place you with an employer so you can learn on-the-job and get a feel for what it’s like to work. This work experience will help you decide whether the particular role and industry is right for you.

If you need help with Maths and English, we’ll give you functional skills training which you’ll receive on-site at your employer’s location or in a classrooms environment at our training centre in Peterlee.

Traineeships aren’t paid, but we will cover your weekly travel expenses and provide you with your uniform if required.

If you are currently in receipt of Job Seekers Allowance or Universal Credit you will still be able to participate in the programme, just make sure you discuss this with your Advisor first.
