Become an apprentice

What is an apprenticeship

An apprenticeship is a real job where you earn while you learn, gain experience and work towards a qualification. You’re an employee with a contract of employment and holiday leave. It can take between one and 6 years to complete an apprenticeship depending on which apprenticeship you are on. 

Levels of apprenticeships

Each apprenticeship has an equivalent education level. You can start an apprenticeship at any level. Apprenticeship levels range from a level 2 (intermediate) up to level 7 (Bachelor’s or master’s degree).
