What are Traineeships?


Traineeships help 16 to 24 year olds get ready for an apprenticeship or job if they don’t have the appropriate skills or experience.


Traineeships is an 8 – 12 week long course that combines the best of two different settings to help you prepare for the world of work. Part of the course will be delivered within a classroom environment and our expert tutors will support you to develop your employability skills and the other part will be based in the workplace where you will gain real work experience and a reference from a well known employer that can really enhance your CV.


Our traineeship courses are offered across Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Essex as well as London and are often focussed on a specific type of job so there are lots of options to suit you and your future plans.

Take the next step

In the past we have worked with employers from retail, hospitality, administration, construction and care sectors to offer work experience placements that give you a real understanding of the type of work you will be asked to do in that job and help you to gain the confidence and skills needed to progress.


Our trainees often go on and find a suitable apprenticeship after completing a traineeship with us and have said that their traineeship was really important for helping them take that next step.

"They really helped me with my communication skills and my Work Placement coach found Blue Arrow. I was really excited because I have always wanted a career in admin and this was my chance to get my foot through the door. After a few weeks, they told me that they liked me and offered me a full time job!"
