Traineeships are an ideal opportunity for young people who are motivated to get a job but who lack the skills, confidence or experience that employers look for or that would support young people in moving onto a full time further education or apprenticeship course. If you have been unsuccessful applying for Apprenticeships due to lack of skills and experience then you might be a good candidate for a traineeship.

A Traineeship is a flexible education and training programme with work experience. 

Myerscough College offers a Traineeship Programme to develop the necessary skills for moving into an Apprenticeship or other education, employment or training opportunity across our range of specialist sectors. Our Traineeships generally run between September and February and February and June. You could be suitable for a Traineeship if you are aged 16-24 years, unemployed (or work less than 16 hours per week), have little work experience and are qualified below Level 3.

Why study a Traineeship?
• Work preparation training which ensures you are ready and have the confidence to take the first step in your career, such as an Apprenticeship.
• English and maths support to help give you the literacy and numeracy skills needed for the workplace.
• A meaningful work experience placement which provides insight and experience of the world of work.

Work placements are available across the job sector, including: horticulture, business administration, customer service, hospitality and catering, child care and much, much more.

Applicants who require additional time before being ready to take on a work placement may wish to consider our Moving on Programme which contains the Employability and English and maths elements without the work placement.
