Enjoy the best of both worlds when you learn and earn on the job as a trainee. Traineeships focus mostly on the non-traditional trade qualifications.
As with apprenticeships, you learn on the job and you must be employed full time or part time. The main difference between an apprenticeship and a traineeship is the duration of training.
Most traineeships run for one year, however, in some cases this could extend to three years. The industry and the qualification will determine whether it is classed as an apprenticeship or a traineeship, and the length of time needed to complete the training.
