Work experience with a difference
A traineeship is a skills development programme that includes a work placement. It can last from six weeks up to one year (although most will last between 8-12 weeks).
Traineeships help 16 to 24-year olds - or 25-year olds with an education, health and care (EHC) plan - get ready for an apprenticeship or job if they don’t have the appropriate skills or experience. At its core, traineeships are work preparation training, English and Maths for those who need it, and a high-quality work experience placement.
Traineeships last between 8-12 weeks and include:

The incentive is intended to support you to cover any additional cost of supporting the trainee in the workplace i.e. DBS checks, PPE, travel costs.
