What is a Traineeship?

A traineeship combines learning in an education and training setting and in the workplace. They take 6 – 20 months to complete. Traineeships provide you with job-specific training and workplace coaching with an employer at Levels 4 to 6 on the National Framework of Qualifications.

Traineeships give employers access to a pipeline of talent and learners. They also give you, the learner, the opportunity to gain valuable experience in real work and industry environments, making you more skilled, more employable and enhancing your employment opportunities.

Certification

The traineeships we offer are linked to the National Framework Qualifications (NFQ). This 10-step fan diagram maps Education and Training in Ireland, so people can easily find out what level they are at.
