16 - 24 Traineeships

A Traineeship is an education training programme with industry specific work experience that is focused on giving young people, aged 16-24yrs, the skills and experience that employers are looking for within the active leisure sector.

FIT UK works with a network of employers nationally to source work experience opportunities, which when combined with a fully funded 16-24 week training programme, provides the ideal preparation for progressing into a paid apprenticeship or full or part time employment.
At the end of their Traineeship, each young person will be guaranteed a job interview if a role becomes available or exit interview and a reference from the company providing the work experience placement.
