What is an Apprenticeship?
An Apprenticeship is a real job with training, so you can earn while you learn and pick up a nationally recognised qualification as you go. Many employers keep their apprentices as permanent staff after they complete their training.
• Earning a salary
• Training in the skills employers want
• Excellent progression opportunities
• Increased future earning potential (apprentices enjoy marked salary increases when they complete their training)
• Better long-term salary prospects
• Learning at a pace suited to the individual with the support of a mentor
• Paid holiday
Who can apply?
You can apply for an apprenticeship if you are:
• 16 or over
• eligible to work in England
• not in full-time education
How much does it cost?
Most apprenticeships are funded by the government but there is also the option of a 24+ student loan for those that aren’t.
