apprenticeApprenticeships are flexible work based learning programmes that give you the opportunity to gain valuable skills and experience, a nationally recognised qualification and earn a wage at the same time.

As an employee, apprentices work alongside experienced staff in the workplace learning hands-on job specific skills and getting invaluable experience. You will usually also attend college on a day release basis, improving your theoretical knowledge of the subject and working towards your qualifications.

Apprenticeships are suitable for anyone 16 years and over and living in England. You can be just leaving school, have already been in employment, or are looking to start a new career.

Apprenticeships are designed with the help of employers, so you gain all the skills you need to do a job well and get the experience you need to get employed. Once you have completed an apprenticeship, you will have a lot of options for your future – you can go on to do a higher level apprenticeship, continue your education and even go to university, or progress up the career ladder in your sector.
