What is an apprenticeship?
Apprenticeships combine a paid job and training at work, often enhanced by studying at college.
As an apprentice, you will work for, and be paid by, an employer. You may spend one or two days a week at college, learning extra skills including English, maths and IT. Or you may learn entirely in the workplace, with our dedicated assessors visiting you on site to see how you’re getting on.
Programmes usually last for between one to two years and offer a direct route into employment, giving you the opportunity to develop your skills.
Businesses value apprentices so much that the government has agreed to create another 200,000 opportunities by 2020. Industry knows that apprenticeships are a win-win for the economy and individual learners.
