An apprenticeship is a real job. And employers respect them. In fact, they think that apprentices are 15% more employable than those with other qualifications. You'll be working alongside experienced people, supporting them and learning from them as you go. Working at least 30 hours a week, you’ll gain most of the training you need in the workplace. But you may also go to a college, training provider, training centre or learn online to gain vital skills and qualifications.
Apprenticeships are now available in more than 170 industries. Respected by employers across the world, apprenticeships lead to a national qualification, with a network of support available to give you all the help you need to do well. It’s also in your employers’ interest to help you succeed. And all your training will be designed with your employer. So you can relax in the knowledge that you’re learning the right stuff to get you ahead.
An apprenticeship is a great way to enjoy a successful start in work, and life. As well as learning the skills and gaining the qualifications you want, you’ll also gain confidence and the chance to learn while earning. Every apprenticeship is different, but each one is varied, stimulating and challenging. Discover the apprenticeship that’s right for you.
