What’s an apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships combine practical training in a job with study. As an apprentice, you’ll: – work alongside experienced staff – gain job-specific skills – earn a wage and get holiday pay – be given time for study related to your role (the equivalent of one day a week)

What levels are there? All apprenticeships include elements of on the job and off the job training, leading to industry recognised standards or qualifications. Some apprenticeships also require an assessment at the end of the programme to assess the apprentice`s ability and competence in their job role.

What’s in it for me?

Earn a real wage; – Be trained in the skills employers want; – You will set yourself up for the future – apprentices enjoy marked salary increases when they complete their training, and those completing a higher apprenticeship could see increased earnings of an estimated £150,000 over their lifetime.*
