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.
