A Traineeship is a training programme designed to help you towards an Apprenticeship, further education or a job in the sector you want to work in. A Traineeship from Skills Training UK will give you:

  • High-quality work experience
  • The opportunity to study towards vocational qualification(s) in your chosen sector
  • Personal and employability skills for the workplace
  • English and Maths support, if you don’t already have them at GCSE grades 9-4 or equivalent
  • Support to take positive next steps towards your goals

We currently offer Traineeships within the following sectors:

  • You have any qualifications up to and including Level 3
  • You are motivated to work
  • You are unemployed, or work fewer than 16 hours per week and have little work experience.

You can choose from sector-specific traineeships which include accredited, nationally-recognised qualifications in your chosen area.

We’re not like school or college; classes are small, your learning programme is tailored to you and our supportive trainers and mentors are always on hand to help.

We also offer a wide range of short courses which are linked to our Study and traineeships programmes.

  • Emergency First Aid in the Work Place Level 2
  • Food Hygiene Level 2
  • Manual Handling
