How long do they take?
Generally, Apprenticeships take between one and four years to complete. However, the exact length can vary and depends on a range of factors, such as your skill level, the qualification being obtained and the industry.

Will I get paid?
The National Minimum Wage for all Apprentice is £3.50 per hour. However, employers can choose to pay above this to reflect the job and the qualities of the Apprentice.

Will I need any qualifications?
Employers will specify what qualifications they require for apprenticeship jobs in their business. College staff will work with you to understand your current qualifications and to plan a learning and development programme tailored to meet your development needs and that of your employers.

What can I do after an apprenticeship?
Once you have completed your apprenticeship, you will discuss with your employer whether you need to progress further into a higher level apprenticeship programme. Most importantly, an Apprenticeship will provide you the knowledge, skills and qualification for employment in your chosen occupation and sector.

Hour of work?
On average, you will work for 30 hours per week, and spend a day at the college or undertaking other forms of ‘Off the Job’ Training.
