Removal of the ’16-hour rule’ for Traineeship Participants Information

Removal of the ’16-hour rule’ for Traineeship Participants Information

 Founder of Apprenticeships Life

From Monday, 3 March the Department for Work and Pensions is removing the ’16-hour 
rule’ for training that has applied to Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA) claimants participating 
in Traineeships in England. 

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