What is an Apprenticeship?

An Apprenticeship allows you to gain both skills and knowledge within your sector of choice, whilst working within a real workplace environment.  What you’ll learn depends on the role that you’re training for. There are a variety of Apprenticeships, spanning many sectors. It is a great alternative to the university route. You gain job-specific skills & knowledge throughout the Apprenticeship programme.

 Is an Apprenticeship for me?

Apprenticeships are an ideal path if you have a clear idea of the career you’d like to pursue, and you’re willing to commit to work and study. Unlike in school, at college or on a traditional course, the majority of your learning will be through a combination of on and off-the-job training in your place of work, which is supported by your training provider.

To be eligible for an Apprenticeship

  • You need to be 16+ as of 31st August
  • You can be employed or unemployed
  • You’re not currently on another Government funded programme
  • You need to have been living legally in the UK or EU for the last 3 years
