Traineeships are perfect if you’re aged 19-23, have D grade or lower at GCSE and are looking to get in to work.

Gain work skills, work experience, an employer’s reference and get ready for employment in around 8 weeks.

Our Traineeship program has helped many people progress into full time Apprenticeship or employment and paid as quickly as possible.

How a Traineeship works:

After signing up, you will get:

  • 3-4 weeks classroom based training to prepare you for work and providing you with qualifications in employability and functional skills (Maths, English and ICT)
  • work placement of at least 101 hours (typically over 4 weeks) with a local business
  • an employer’s reference for you documenting your work experience
  • a job interview with the employer for an apprenticeship or job offer
  • ongoing help and support after you’ve done your placement to find work if needed

What the professionals are saying

We’ve had a number of young people that have successfully completed their work placements with the trust and as a result many have been offered apprenticeships in front line roles with departments such as Out Patients, Pharmacy and in various administrative roles.

Aim Skills have been extremely instrumental in providing unemployed customers the opportunities needed to get them close and back into work. The training programmes they offer have been very useful to customers and many have found work. The apprenticeships available are very good and there is always demand for these type of roles.

What the trainees are saying

I learned valuable and progressive skills to assist me in future job roles. After working in Upton Park for several weeks I was called for an interview for an apprenticeship in the Business Admin department in the Pharmacy at the Royal London Hospital. I have now started my official apprenticeship programme on the 3rd of July which is contracted for 18 months of paid work.

Because of the Traineeship, I have achieved things that I did not think I could ever do. I loved my 4 weeks at Aim Skills and my tutor was so helpful to me throughout. I got the confidence to go to my first job interview and now I have a position in an office rather than doing nothing.
