Traineeships & Apprenticeships


A Traineeship is an introduction-level programme that combines a work placement with training, it helps to prepare young people for the world of work and supports with English and Mathematics if required.

Traineeship information can be sought through local Education & Training centres including Training 2000 and NLTG.


Apprenticeships allow you to combine work and study by mixing on-the-job training with classroom learning. You will be employed to do a real job while studying for a formal qualification, usually for one day a week either at a college or a training centre. By the end of your apprenticeship, you will hopefully have gained the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in your chosen career or progress onto the next apprenticeship level.

All Apprenticeship opportunities are advertised on the National Apprenticeships Website

Your son/daughter must be registered on this site to apply for apprenticeships not advertised through an agency or training provider.
