Young people aged 16-17 years must stay in education, training, or employment with training.

Most young people go to college, continue in school, or do an apprenticeship. But if none of these options suit, they may do a Traineeship.

Traineeships help you to build skills in advance of doing a course or apprenticeship. They also support you to get a job or apprenticeship that is right for you.

Take Action: Find your traineeship on oxme or on the traineeship finder.
