Good News for Traineeships

Lifetime Training understands that a Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA) exemption for Traineeships that was promised by government in 2013 is to be implemented from March.

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) rule limits to 16 hours the amount of time JSA claimants can train every week and still get benefits.

But trainees in England aged 19 and above will now be exempted from Monday, 3rd March, in a move that includes all new and existing enrolments, according to a Skills Funding Agency spokesperson. The new limit has been almost doubled to 30 hours a-week.

The removal of the ’16-hour rule’ applies only to the Traineeship programme and includes all new and existing participants.

JSA claimants aged 19+ will be able to participate in a Traineeship programme for up to 30 hours a-week without affecting their JSA entitlement.
