LLETS develops business and people.

Trainees and Apprentices

Businesses everywhere are benefiting greatly from the Welsh Government's Traineeship and Apprenticeship programme!

LLETS, a Swansea based Training Provider which delivers vocational training via Traineeships and Apprenticeships, is helping businesses by delivering high quality training and supplying them with the staff they need.

A young person wishing to pursue a Traineeship will require a work placement and will receive a Training Allowance.  The employer will not be required to pay the Trainee a wage.

An individual wishing to pursue an Apprenticeship must be in employment or about to start.  Although, an employer is responsible for paying an Apprentice a wage, the Welsh Government covers the cost of the training, with support from the European Social Fund.

Employers wishing to recruit an Apprentice may be eligible for a £50 per week wage subsidy for 52 weeks under the Welsh Government's 'Young Recruits Programme'.
