Support Towards an Apprenticeship or a Job

Our Traineeship is a fully funded, full-time programme that runs for 12 weeks. You’ll earn a Level 2 WorkSkills qualification and boost your CV with valuable work experience.

Our Traineeship programme is designed to be a stepping stone towards an apprenticeship or job. It’s a fully-funded course to help you build professional skills and gain work experience.

You’ll study at the Fashion Retail Academy two days a week. You can apply if you don’t have a 4-9 in GCSE English and/or Maths, and we’ll support you in whichever subjects you need to develop. On two more days, you’ll complete a work placement with one of our partner brands.

The programme is fully funded, so you don’t need to pay anything. Whilst studying at the Fashion Retail Academy, all your travel expenses will be covered.

Who can apply

You can apply for our Traineeship programme if you:

  • Are living in Greater London
  • Are 16 - 18 Years Old
  • Are eligible to work in England
  • Are unsure of your skills but are keen to start work
  • Have left full-time education with little or no work experience

You’ll need to meet all these conditions to be eligible for the traineeship programme.


Over 12 weeks, you’ll earn a Level 2 WorkSkills qualification. This means you’ll improve your professional skills in:

  • CV writing
  • Interview techniques
  • Job search methods
  • Building an online presence

Our FRACareers service will support you with your next steps, including apprenticeship and job applications, or moving into further education.

If you haven’t achieved GCSE qualifications, you can also work towards a Level 2 Functional Skills in English and Maths award on the programme.
