Traineeships is a learning programme for young people aged 16 to 18 years old in Wales.

The programme gives 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, ensuring that individual learners get the support and encouragement needed to help them to progress.

Traineeships is not time-bound, but  based on the needs of each individual learner.

Traineeships also supports each individual learner by providing an allowance.

To find out more go to Careers Wales and search the Courses in Wales database for opportunities in your area or alternatively call the Learning and Careers Advice helpline on 0800 028 4844.

In December 2014, York Consulting was commissioned by the Welsh Government to undertake a review of Traineeships. The purpose of the review was to examine how the programme is working in practice to inform future policy and programme delivery.
