Traineeships are an excellent opportunity to gain real work experience, job skills and improve your maths and English if required but ultimately progressing to full time paid employment or an apprenticeship.

At NLET we offer a range of traineeship subject specific programmes which last over 8 weeks.

If you are unemployed and have little or no work experience.

The learning and training is a really important stepping stone for you to secure your dream you may not be quite ready for permanent employment or an Apprenticeship.

We will help you with work preparation training, such as CV writing, developing a personal statement and job searching.

You are eligible for the programme if;

  • Motivated to work and eager to succeed.
  • Aged 16 – 18yrs and qualified below level 3.

English and maths support will be given (unless you have already achieved a GCSE A* - C / 5-9 in English and Maths or a functional skills qualification at level 2) to enhance a quality work experience placement with an employer.


We were lucky enough to find NLET through the SEND team at LB of Hounslow. Daniel has a diagnosis of Aspergers and ADD and has recently been granted an EHCP.

Since starting his IT apprenticeship with Sam, Daniel's confidence and sense of purpose have been lifted greatly and this is turn has improved his behaviour and disposition at home. I am confident that this is the start of a mutually beneficial association with NLET, which will enable Daniel to start to reach his full potential under the guidance of Phil, Emma, Sam and Sobia.
