Introduction to Traineeships

Traineeships are a new and exciting opportunity to help young people aged 16-18 to get work ready for a career. It is a short 10-16 week pre-apprenticeship programme which provides work experience, work preparation skills and maths, English and digital skills development.

Whether you are an employer looking to recruit fresh talent to grow your business or a young person looking for a chance to develop their skills, and gain work experience a Traineeship offers a range of mutual benefits.

At JTL, we offer Traineeships in selected locations across England, enabling young people to get a flavour of what it’s like to be a plumber, heating engineer, electrician or engineering maintenance operative and become better prepared to start an apprenticeship programme.

Although we specialise in the building services engineering sector, we provide young people with the experience and skills to help them apply for any type of work.
