IT traineeships

What is an IT traineeship?

An IT traineeship is a learn-work trajectory in which young professionals are trained and gain work experience. Often with the aim of entering permanent employment with a client after the traineeship. IT traineeships last 1 to 2 years on average.

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.

How much does an IT trainee earn?

The average salary for an IT traineeship is between €1900 and €2600 per month.

More info and explanations can be found here.

What could your job be after an IT traineeship?

Most college and university level traineeships will train you for various high-level tech roles.

For more information, read our blog where we explain the different IT roles in detail.
