What is a Traineeship/Study Programme?

Traineeships and study programs prepare young people aged 16 and 24 for their future careers by helping them to become ‘work ready'.

They provide the essential work preparation training, IT, Maths and English and real employer work experience. This means you can progress into a job or an Apprenticeship.

These are short, job focussed courses that mean you can progress quickly.

How much do they cost?

Traineeships and Study Programs are provided at no cost for learners who meet the eligibility criteria.

Eligibility criteria

  • Between 16 and 24 years
  • Have little or no work experience
  • Reside in the West Midlands, East Midlands or North West to meet our funding contract

Typically they include
