What are Apprenticeships?

The world is changing fast and to get ahead in your career you need to have world class skills. But you don’t need to sit in a classroom all day to get them. An Apprenticeship is a real job with training so you can earn while you learn and pick up some recognised qualifications as you go.

Apprenticeships give you the opportunity to work for a real employer, earn a real salary and gain a real qualification whilst gaining valuable workplace skills and experience. If you live in England, are over 16 and not in full time education you can apply for an apprenticeship.

Apprenticeships take between one and two years to complete depending on the level of Apprenticeship, the apprentices’ ability and the industry sector. The minimum salary is £3.30 per hour; however, many apprentices earn significantly more.

Throughout your Apprenticeship you will have the support of a Training Officer. The Training Officer is there to work in partnership with you and your employer and guide you both through the whole apprenticeship programme. The Training Officer will visit you regularly at your placement. To find out more visit: www.apprenticeships.org.uk
