It's simple and works
Apprenticeships are nationally recognised qualifications with “On the job” training available to those aged 16 and over.
Apprenticeships take a minimum of 12 months to complete, depending on the sector and level, however, some can last up to four years. Throughout the time of the Apprenticeship, an Apprentice is trained and guided towards a skilled role gaining industry knowledge and the skills required to do the job in the sector of their choice.
An Apprenticeship is the ideal way to earn whilst you learn, combining elements of education, training and employment simultaneously. Apprenticeships offer the same tasks and roles as regular employment, though there is a greater amount of support.
