Jumpstart your career with Traineeships!

Government figures show nearly three quarters of young people who have done a traineeship go on to further employment or study within a year.

What are they?

Traineeships are education and training programmes focused on giving 19-24 year olds the skills and experience needed to succeed in a future career. Trainees are taught skills to improve their chances of getting an apprenticeship or a job. Traineeships are a great way to help you build your CV as they help you learn the essential skills that are so valuable to employers. They'll set you on the path to compete for jobs and apprenticeships you wish to apply for in the future.



  • You must be eligible to work in England

  • You must have little or no work experience but are motivated to work

  • You have to be aged 19 to 24


From Northern Training Academy, the training provider, you'll get:

  • Training to prepare you for work, including CV writing and what to expect in the workplace

  • Support to improve your English, Maths and Digital Skills if you need it

  • Sector focused vocational learning to help prepare you for your apprenticeship or job and recognition of your learning

From the Employer, you'll get:

  • a high-quality work placement of at least 70 hours, giving you valuable work experience

  • an interview for an apprenticeship or job if available, or an exit interview with written feedback


How could a traineeship benefit me?

  • You can gain crucial skills and work experience that employers desire

  • Unlock your potential and prepare yourself for the world of work and the path ahead

  • Traineeships allow you to stand out from the crowd and show motivation and commitment

  • Opportunity to gain hands on experience with a high-quality employer


Will I get paid? What if I need to pay for travel or a uniform?

You won't receive a wage during a traineeship, but you will if you're offered a job or an apprenticeship at the end of your placement. Northern Training Academy cover your expenses (travel, uniform etc.) and training is fully funded by the Government. You can also still claim Universal Credit alongside a traineeship.
