I don’t have enough qualifications or experience to get accepted for an apprenticeship or vocational course. What can I do?
Some employers offer traineeships in association with training organisations to young people aged 16 to 24 who have been unsuccessful when applying for an apprenticeship or other job due to a lack of skills and experience.
A traineeship is an education and training programme with work experience. It is designed to give young people the skills and experience that employers are looking for. Employers provide a work experience placement, while the training organisation provides work preparation training, English and maths support.
At the end of your work experience placement you’ll get a job interview with the company if a role becomes available, or a reference and an exit interview.
You can find out more by contacting one of the participating training providers near you or asking at your local Jobcentre Plus.
