Current Apprenticeships In Cumbria

Considering an Apprenticeship?

There are lots of benefits to apprenticeships, here are our top 5:

  • Paid Training
    Not only will your organisation (or the Government) pay for all of your training, but you’ll be paid to do it. That means you could actually get paid to get your degree and have no debt!
  • Range of career opportunities
    There are over 500 different apprenticeships to choose from, in a range of industries. Whether you’re interested in law, marketing, construction or engineering, you’ll find something up your street!
  • Earn & learn
    As an apprentice, the minimum you’ll earn is £4.15 an hour, but we’ve seen some apprentices earn over £25,000 a year! You could also get other employee benefits like gym memberships, paid holiday and sick pay.
  • Great career prospects
    Employers think apprentices are 15% more employable than those with other qualifications. In fact, many large employers train their graduates and apprentices together!
  • Learn on the job
    There’s only so much you can learn when you just do a qualification. As an apprentice, you’ll also get to learn on the job - whether that’s designing amazing graphics, chopping vegetables or building engines!
