Looking for advice for your son or daughter regarding apprenticeships?

What is an Apprenticeship?

An apprenticeship is a training programme that provides your child with learning and development combined with industry-specific training. It is a great opportunity for young people wanting to kick-start their future and gain hands-on experience in their industry of choice.

The Benefits of an Apprenticeship

An Apprenticeship will provide your son or daughter with an opportunity for learning and development while allowing them to gain a nationally recognised qualification and earn a wage. Unlike the more conventional routes into the workplace such as university, they will gain skills and experience on-the-job.

Apprenticeships vary in length from 1 to 5 years and cover 1,500 job roles in a wide range of industries, from engineering to accountancy, public relations to fashion and textiles. Apprenticeships provide real-world practical learning in the workplace, which is vital to succeed in many industries such as childcare, construction, engineering, hospitality and marketing. Apprenticeships offer career progression alongside nationally recognised qualifications, meaning that your child can kick-start a career in their chosen field.

Apprenticeships are now available up to degree level and beyond.  To start an Apprenticeship individuals must be 16 +, living in England and not in full-time education. Apprenticeships are open to existing employees, jobseekers, school leavers and career changers alike.


A traineeship is the ideal opportunity for your son or daughter if they are motivated and eager to enter employment or begin an apprenticeship, but just need that extra support in the core skills and qualifications necessary to do so.

Traineeships combine academic training and work experience to help 16 – 24 year olds develop the necessary skills to secure an apprenticeship.
