Apprenticeships offer real workplace experience and professional skills
Do you want to start a great career and pick up recognised qualifications at the same time? Apprentices do real jobs for real employers, meaning you can continue your education, gain essential workplace experience and earn a wage too!
Start earning whilst learning
On the job, apprenticeships let you earn a wage from day one and gain experience in your chosen profession. At the same time you will continue your training and education, gaining recognised industry qualifications such as NVQs (QCF) and technical certificates such as BTECs or diplomas. An apprenticeship can take, on average, 1-2 years to complete but will give you a fantastic start in your chosen industry and new career.
Where will an apprenticeship take you?
Apprenticeships are a great first step on the career ladder but the benefits to you don’t stop there. You will have real work experience, qualifications and employer references that will set you above the rest when applying for jobs in the future. At the end of your apprenticeship you could progress onto a Higher Apprenticeship (Level 4/5), or even go on into higher education at college or university.
