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).

Apprenticeships are an excellent way of gaining qualifications and workplace experience. You can earn as you learn and gain practical skills in the workplace. There are lots of different types of apprenticeships, from business administration, digital, construction, engineering, care and much more.

Apprenticeships are open to:

  • Anyone over the age of 16 and not in full time education 
  • Whether you are just leaving school
  • Have been working for years or are looking to retrain for a new career

Benefits of an apprenticeship 

  • learn and train for a specific job 
  • get paid, receive holiday leave and other benefits 
  • get hands-on, relevant work  experience in your chosen job 
  • study for at least 20% of your working hours - usually at a college, university or with a training provider
