What is an apprenticeship?
An apprenticeship is a real job where you’ll work towards nationally-recognised qualifications, gain vital industry experience and earn a weekly wage. If you have a particular career in mind and prefer to take a more hands on approach to education, then this type of on-the-job training is ideally suited to you.
Our apprenticeship offer
We offer over 50 different apprenticeships, individually designed to support your progressing needs and career goals. Apprenticeships are available in the following industries:
- Auto repair
- Business administration
- Construction trades
- Creative digital media
- Hair and beauty
- Health and social care
- Social media
- Sport and exercise
And many, many more!
Apprenticeships can be studied at a level to suit you, from Level 2 all the way up to university-level.
Apprenticeships aren’t restrictive. You can choose to start an apprenticeship at any point in your education journey. You may choose to study at college then progress on to an apprenticeship, or vice versa. For example you could complete your A Levels then move on to a university-level apprenticeship. Likewise you could study a Level 3 apprenticeship and still move on to a degree at a university.
Who is an apprenticeship for?
Anyone over the age of 16 and living in England can undergo an apprenticeship – there’s no upper age limit! If you have a particular career goal in mind then an apprenticeship programme could be ideally suited to you as it will provide you with the specific set of skills you need to get there. Apprenticeships are also great for those already in employment looking to develop their existing skills and knowledge.
