There is a range of work related learning options including Apprenticeships, Traineeships and Supported Internships.

Entry requirements vary depending on the opportunity.


Apprenticeships combine practical training in a job with study. They can take between one and four years to complete depending on the level.  An apprentice will work at least 30 hours a week and receive the national minimum wage for apprentices. As an apprentice, a young person will be studying for a national qualification, either in their place of work or in a classroom. This can be for one day per week or for specific blocks of time.

Supported Internships

A supported internship is a study programme that includes an unpaid work experience offered by a local employer that will last between six and twelve months.  This option may be right for a young person if they are between 16 -24 with an Education Health and Care Plan and they want to work towards being in employment but may require extra support to do so. There are no entry or completion requirements. Each learning provider will work with the young person to develop a personalised programme that meets your needs and provides progression.


A traineeship is an unpaid training course with work experience that gets a young person ready for work or for an apprenticeship. It can last up to six months. The aim of a traineeship is to provide work preparation, English and Maths training for those who need it and a work experience.
