Traineeships are designed to prepare young people for the world of work, and are a great first step towards an apprenticeship or employment. Traineeships available to 16-24 year olds, with qualifications lower than Level 4, and are available in many industry areas.

What will I do?

Traineeships provide you with an opportunity to gain real work experience, alongside developing job skills and improve your English and maths qualifications (if necessary).

A high quality work placement and training are at the core of all traineeships, providing you with the skills and experience that employers are looking for, helping you improve your career prospects either with an apprenticeship or full time employment.

Along with developing the skills and experience that employers are looking for, a traineeship at Boston College will also benefit you in the following ways:

  • You'll have the opportunity to develop your CV by adding valuable work experience and industry knowledge
  • By taking part in work preparation training, you'll be putting yourself in a better position when competing for future apprenticeships or job vacancies
  • You'll have access to English and maths support, if necessary, which will over time improve your career prospects and long term earning potential
  • By gaining work experience from a high quality work placement, you'll be 'work ready' and have developed the confidence to take the first step towards an apprenticeship or employment
  • At the end of your traineeship you will have the opportunity to be interviewed for a position within the company if one is available. If there isn't a vacancy or any apprenticeships available, you will be provided an exit interview and meaningful feedback to help you work towards securing an apprenticeship or employment in the future

There are no formal entry qualifications for a Traineeship.

The course programme is completed over a flexible period of six weeks to twelve months - split between Boston College attendance and work experience with a local employer. The course content is tailored to your individual career needs and aims.

Traineeships are free for those aged 16 - 24 years old.
