Government to provide 30k new traineeships

The Government is pledging to deliver 30,000 new traineeships to get young people into work, with a £111m programme to give English firms £1,000 for each work-experience place they offer and £21m going toward similar schemes in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.


A Treasury statement detailing plans to expand the traineeship programme warned that “young people's employment prospects are expected to be disproportionately affected by the economic fallout of coronavirus”. The Treasury said that while three quarters of young people who complete a traineeship moved on to employment or further study within a year, three quarters of 18-24 year-olds who are not in education, employment or training for three months will remain out of work and education for a full 12 months.
