A traineeship is an education and training programme, for those aged 16 to 24 and not in any education, training, or employment.

“I joined the Construction Traineeship straight out of school after receiving my GCSE’s. I’ve gained knowledge of joinery and the skills to do it, joinery was something I knew I wanted to do.

I’m enjoying doing something new as I’ve never done joinery, bricklaying, or roofing before.”
