What is a Traineeship?

A traineeship is a tailer-made programme of support for young people aged 16-24, who want to work, but who need extra help to gain an apprenticeship or a job.

Traineeships give young people the opportunity to develop the skills needed by employers, and the workplace experience to enhance long-term career development.

Our programme will give you the confidence and skills you'll need to compete in the labour market with more experienced candidates. PTS work closely with over 6,000 committed and supportive employers and organisations across the county who provide their own vital input. So, no matter what career you would like to progress into, we can find the right placement for you!

A traineeship with PTS will provide you with the opportunity to reach your personal best - your employment journey starts here!
