Is an Apprenticeship for me?

what is an apprenticeship?

An apprenticeship in the UK is a job or work placement that provides paid practical on-the-job training, sometimes in combination with classroom-based and remote study, to give individuals a first step into a career or an opportunity to develop their career in a direction. modern apprenticeships typically permit school leavers to develop academic qualifications while being trained in a profession.

Apprenticeships usually take between one and four years to complete (depending on their level) and are available for a huge range of job roles and sectors. From level 2 (GCSE or equivalent) to level 7 (Master’s Degree or equivalent)

what do apprentices do?

Apprentices will be based in a business alongside experienced staff and complete real work. Usually full time work (minimum of 30 hours per week.)

Working in an actual profession gives apprentices the opportunities to learn job-specific skills, as well as transferable competencies like time management or teamwork. Apprentices usually attend formal training, in person or virtually via a college, university or training organisation, to gain a related qualification.
