If you are aged 19 – 24 and want to gain real work experience, employability skills, and a qualification – our Ignite traineeship programme offers it all!

What happens in an Ignite Traineeship?

It offers the perfect mix of working in a real employers place of work combined with developing yourself and learning a new skill and qualification.
