An Apprenticeship is a way to earn money in a real job while you learn and gain a valued qualification at the same time. Apprenticeships take from 12 months to four years to complete depending on the level and the course. Apprenticeships are perfect for ambitious people of any age who are looking to gain skills, progress within a career and earn a wage at the same time. When you first start out in your career you usually need a mix of qualifications and experience. An apprenticeship gives you both and you get paid at the same time!
Apprenticeships enable you to develop as a person, to have the balance of a college and work life but most importantly you will gain a valuable qualification in your chosen career.
With some apprenticeships you can even get a degree without the burden of a student loan to pay back at the end!
