YfEj provides as well the possibility to find / offer a traineeship contract.
As for the apprenticeship contracts, in order to benefit from YfEj, the traineeship contract will be submitted to some additional requirements. In particular, employers that take an traineeship through YfEj are required to:
Please note that traineeships forming part of mandatory professional certification requirements (as is the normal practice with regulated professions such as law, medicine and architecture) are not covered by YfEj.
Moreover, traineeships will be considered as eligible only if they represent a real opportunity of professional empowerment and growth for the young worker and reinforce their capacity to find a job after the end of the traineeship.
Regarding the possibility for SMEs to obtain a financial support for the provision of an integration programme, please note that in the case of traineeships, the conditionality rule to obtain support is that there should be no overlap between the integration programme and the planned traineeship programme.
Although the employer should determine the extent and content of the integration programme, it must always include at least a training or learning component.
