An apprenticeship combines practical and hands-on learning with studying towards a nationally recognised qualification. You will join a business as an employee, allowing you to acquire a series of transferable skills useful in every working situation.
As an apprentice you will gain fantastic experience working alongside experienced members of the workforce that will allow you to put your skills into practice and gain confidence in a working environment.
You are eligible to begin an apprenticeship if you are 16+, live in England and are no longer in full-time education. Apprenticeships are available to existing employees, jobseekers, school leavers and career changers alike.
Typically, apprenticeships take between one and four years to complete depending on the level of qualification, the apprentice’s ability and the industry sector.
