Learn more about Apprenticeships

What is an Apprenticeship?

Earn while you learn; gain the necessary skills and competencies needed to fulfil a role while in genuine permanent employment.  

Apprenticeships help individuals of all backgrounds to achieve qualifications whilst working and earning money. They typically last between 12 and 24 months and unlike college or university, there generally aren’t many qualification-based entry requirements, and most of the learning happens through on-the-job training at your chosen workplace.

In short, apprenticeships can give you the skills, knowledge and experience to build a successful career in a supportive and practical setting. In England, there are apprenticeships for over 1,500 job roles, which means you are almost guaranteed to find an exciting and fulfilling position to suit your interests.
