A Traineeship is a government funded programme that prepares you for your future career, helping you to get ready for the world of work and improve your chances of getting an Apprenticeship or other job. The Qube Traineeship Team (QTT) can help you every step of the way.

What do Traineeships include?

Traineeships lasts 8 weeks with the content tailored to your individual needs. It includes:

  • Work preparation training which ensures you are ready and have confidence to take the first step in your career

  • Meaningful work experience which provides insight and experience of the world of work and makes you more attractive to potential employers

  • English and maths support to help give you the literacy and numeracy skills needed for the workplace


Benefits of a Traineeship

  • A Traineeship will put you in a better position to compete for an Apprenticeship or secure a job

  • Traineeships give you the opportunity to build your CV and get vital experience with local and national employers

  • Improving your English and maths skills will boost your chances of getting a job, as well as improving long term prospects and earning potential over your lifetime

  • Employers are at the centre of Traineeships to ensure they give you the skills needed

  • At the end of the work experience placement you’ll get a guaranteed job interview with the company

Will I be paid?

Although work placements are unpaid, employers are encouraged to support expenses such as transport. Depending on your circumstances you may be able to access financial support through the 16-19 Bursary Fund. All training costs are funded by the Government.

Is a Traineeship right for me?

Traineeships are an ideal opportunity for young people who are motivated to get a job but may lack the skills and experience that employers are looking for. If you have been unsuccessfully applying for Apprenticeships or jobs, then a Traineeship might be for you.

You could be suitable for a Traineeship if you:

  • Are unemployed (or work less than 16 hours per week) and have little work experience

  • Are motivated to work

A Traineeship is probably not right for you if you:

  • Are aged 24 plus (unless you are subject to Learning Difficulty Assessments and are aged 16 or over and under 25)

  • Are already in a job
