Find a traineeship

An opportunity to become work ready for 16-24 year olds 

A traineeship is an education and training programme with quality work experience. Traineeships can unlock the great potential of young people and prepare them for their future careers by helping them to become ‘work ready’. Designed to help young people aged 16 to 24 who don’t yet have the appropriate skills or experience, traineeships provide the essential work preparation training, English, maths and work experience needed to secure employment or be more ready to start an apprenticeship. Traineeships normally run between 6 weeks – 12 months. 

The offer locally in and around Plymouth will be expanding over coming months given the Government’s recent announcement for further investment in Traineeships to support young people. There are currently local traineeship opportunities available which cover the following sectors: Construction, Business, Hairdressing, Child care, Beauty and Health, Catering, Hospitality, and Health and Social Care.
