Apprenticeships & Traineeships


Apprenticeships give you the opportunity to work for a real employer alongside experienced staff. You will earn a salary and gain a qualification as well as valuable workplace experience and relevant job-specific skills.

Visit the government’s website to find out about apprenticeships and to search for apprenticeship opportunities. If you live in Newham, Our Newham Work could also help you with your search.

We offer apprenticeships within the council through the Youth Employment Scheme. If you are aged between 16 and 18 and live in Newham, you could earn £180 while you learn new skills and gain qualifications.


A traineeship is an education and training programme that gives young people the skills and experience they need to get a job or apprenticeship. 

Find out more about traineeships on the government’s website and search for traineeship opportunities.
