Apprenticeships offer a real job, with on the job learning and a good qualification built in. They’re open to everyone, whether you’re just leaving school or thinking about a change later in your working life.
Alongside your day job, you’ll get access to free high quality training to work towards a range of qualifications, even a degree.
There are many to choose from in a range of industries. Apprenticeships pay from entry level money to much more, and they are funded by the government and employers – so you won’t have to pay tuition fees or pay back a student loan.
They can change your life by providing work experience and mentoring from experienced staff, job-specific skills, time off for study, and a clear career path.
