Apprenticeships are paid work based learning programmes where employers provide the on the job training leading to a nationally recognised qualification. Off the job training usually takes place at a college or a training centre one day per week and provides the apprentice with up to date skills and knowledge. Employers pay the apprentice’s standard wages but the overall training programme is managed by an industry skilled training provider.

Traineeships are a combined programme of education and training for young people to help them secure an apprenticeship or a job. They can last up to 6 months and employers provide an unpaid training placement for the trainee. This is supplemented by off the job work preparation training provided by a training provider.
