The programme will give young people the skills needed to get a job or progress to further learning at a higher level, such as an apprenticeship or further education.
Participation on the Traineeships programme is available at three distinct levels. This will ensure that individual learners get the support and encouragement needed to help them to progress.
Traineeships are not time-bound, but are based on the needs of each individual learner.
Traineeships will also support each individual learner by providing an allowance.
Careers Wales staff play a major role in referring young people to Traineeships.
