When am I eligible for an IT traineeship?
That depends very much on the traineeship provider. Most IT traineeships require a university education degree, but there are also IT traineeships at a MBO level, for ICT support positions for example.
In general, it is not necessary to have studied IT, but again this varies from provider to provider.
Young_Coders, the author of this website, considers you eligible if you have a college/university level of thinking and already have some (hobby) programming experience. A degree helps, but is not required. More information about the admission requirements at Young_Coders can be found on the Young_Coders website.
