What is an apprenticeship?
Apprenticeships provide a unique opportunity for anyone looking to advance their career. You'll be able to undertake in-depth training relevant to the role you're working in while earning a wage!
Apprenticeships, unlike university or college, provide a mix of hands-on experience and tutor-led learning and, by the end of your apprenticeship, you'll have all the skills you need to undertake your role on your own and progress your career even further.
Improve your employability
One of the biggest reasons young people take an apprenticeship is the unique opportunity to gain both practical working experience, as well as industry-specific knowledge taught through tutor sessions at the same time!
The skills and knowledge you pick up will be valuable to any employer and you'll have an edge over others when you apply for a new job.
Earn while you learn
Going to university costs money. A lot of money.
With an apprenticeship, you'll earn a wage while you learn and your tutor will teach you everything you need to know, at no cost to you.
For many apprentices, their apprenticeship leads to full-time employment with their employer and promotes progression opportunities further down the road.
Gain real work experience
Something the classroom can't teach you is experience.
Apprentices get real work experience, talking to customers, working with colleagues and solving problems in a real-world environment.
