An alternative to studying full time at college, Traineeships provide an excellent opportunity for 16- 24 year olds to gain industry experience:

A Traineeship lasts around three months to a year and is a combination of a work placement with distance/e-learning and practical sessions. For further information about traineeships click here.


*The 20 week tasters and some Traineeships will look to commence once lockdown restrictions have been eased. We are still able to support individuals with enquiries about their educational needs in the meantime.
