A trainee­ship em­ploys work­ers in an en­trylevel role through which they re­ceive on-the­job train­ing, while they com­plete vo­ca­tional study out­side the work­place and ob­tain a qual­i­fi­ca­tion.

It is sim­i­lar to an ap­pren­tice­ship, but work­ers are in a non-trade vo­ca­tional job, such as ad­min­is­tra­tion, re­tail, an­i­mal stud­ies and den­tal as­sist­ing. They still earn while they learn.

Typ­i­cal trainee­ships take 12 months to com­plete full time, mak­ing them a per­fect op­tion for a gap year. Work­ers can choose to fur­ther their vo­ca­tional study at the end of the trainee­ship, of­ten stay­ing em­ployed at their host or­gan­i­sa­tion, and fur­ther their ca­reer in the field, or leave to pur­sue other in­ter­ests.
