What is an apprenticeship?
It’s a real job, with hands-on training, a qualification and a wage.
Apprenticeships are for people of all ages from 16+. They give you the opportunity to start a career in a job that suits your skills and interests. Apprenticeships also help those already in work to progress in their current role.
There’s never been a better time to become an apprentice. Once you've completed your apprenticeship, you can move on to a higher level apprenticeship or even progress to university. So what are you waiting for?

If you are employed as an Apprentice you can expect to receive a recognised programme of training designed to give you the skills and experience you need in that job role and business sector.
You will earn at least the minimum wage for an apprentice and work alongside experienced staff learning hands-on job specific skills and getting invaluable experience. You will also usually attend college on a day release basis, improving your theoretical knowledge of the subject and working towards any required qualifications.
Apprenticeships are suitable for anyone 16 years and over and living in England.
You can be just leaving school, already in employment but needing new skills, or are looking to start a new career.
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.
