What are they?
An apprenticeship is a paid job that also gives you time to work towards nationally recognised qualifications.
A traineeship is a training programme which incorporates work experience, designed to prepare young people for their future careers. They are most suitable for young people aged 16 to 24 who don’t yet have the appropriate skills or experience to cope with an apprenticeship.
Where to find Apprenticeship and Traineeship vacancies
The National Apprenticeships Service is a government website where you can find out about the pros and cons of apprenticeships and top tips on how to be a successful applicant. You can search vacancies and create a personal profile which will notify you of vacancies that match your interests.
Amazing Apprenticeships provide lots of resources and useful information for both students and parents.
You can sign up to receive emails from Amazing Apprenticeships, if you haven’t done so already.
