Apprenticeships are work-based training programmes which lead to national recognised qualifications. They are designed around the needs of employers but they also provide you with the opportunity to:
- gain work experience with a real employer
- develop skills and experience in a range of work-related disciplines
- get a recognised qualification that will help you to gain further employment
You will also earn a salary during the period of your training.
Apprenticeships run for a minimum of 12 months. Anyone living in England, who is over 16 years old and not in full time education can apply for an apprenticeship.
For more information about the national apprenticeships scheme, the types of apprenticeships available and the levels of pay available, visit the Gov.uk - Apprenticeships website.
