Apprenticeships are real jobs with training so you can earn while you learn and pick up recognised qualifications as you go. Anyone living in England over the age of 16 and not in full-time education can apply.
An apprenticeship not only trains you in the skills employers want, it also opens up other further career and learning options. You can also:
- collect UCAS points
- study for technical certificates
- go on to higher education or university
- or you can carry on working within the industry and progress your career from there.
Entry requirements will depend on the apprenticeship you want to do.
There are three levels available:
- Intermediate apprenticeships (equivalent to five good GCSE passes)
- Advanced level apprenticeships (equivalent to two A level passes)
- Higher apprenticeships (lead to qualifications at NVQ Level 4 or, in some cases, a foundation degree).
Key benefits in being an apprentice
- earn a salary
- get paid holidays
- receive training
- gain qualifications
- learn job-specific skills.
