Learning for Work - Traineeships

Training for work


Traineeships are work placements designed to get young people career-ready. Thanks to the Chancellor’s post-Covid Plan for Jobs scheme, employers get £1,000 for every learner (up to 10 per region) they take on as part of this programme*.

Young learners benefit from improved employment skills after the programme, and it frequently leads onto apprenticeships or further work-based training.
