What is an apprenticeship and where can it take you?

An apprenticeship gives you hands-on experience, a salary and the opportunity to train while you work.

All of this with some high quality, prestigious companies in loads of different industries. An apprenticeship is a real job.

It’s a way to:

  • earn a wage and learn at the same time, with at least 20% of your time set aside for learning – normally at a college, university or another training provider.
  • gain official certification of your skills, equivalent to a qualification ranging from level 2 (GCSE equivalent) up to degree level.
  • start a long-term career path with the possibility of higher earnings.

By successfully completing your apprenticeship, you'll have gained the confidence and skills needed to progress in your chosen career. Apprenticeships are available across a wide range of industries and organisations, from local businesses to large national brands.
