What is an Apprenticeship?
Apprenticeships in Wales are jobs that include recognised qualifications and job-specific skills. You earn a wage while you work and learn.
Apprenticeships are open to anyone from the age of 16, including those with a disability, health condition or learning difficulty. There is no upper age limit.
You have to apply for an Apprenticeship like any other job. The employer who advertises the Apprenticeship will state the qualifications, skills and experience they require.

What is a Traineeship?
A Traineeship is for young people aged 16-18 in Wales. It is a learning programme that gives you the skills needed to get a job or progress to further learning or an apprenticeship in the future.
A Traineeship gives you the opportunity to have a taste of a job you might be interested in before you commit to a course or apprenticeship.
You’ll be paid for doing a Traineeship and you’ll receive support from your employer to develop your skills and knowledge further.
