Apprenticeships are a practical way for school leavers and other people to gain knowledge of an industry and increase their skills without being confined to full time education. As an apprentice, you will join a business like a regular employee and will work hard and learn on the job. A tutor will visit you to hep build a portfolio of evidence and will work with your employer to help you gain all the skills you need to be successful
You can start an Apprenticeship form the age of 16. You must be enthusiastic, willing to learn from others and be committed to the training.
Your employer will work with a member of our Apprenticeship Team to select the right qualification and units that will help you develop your skills; these skills will be practical and relevant to the place you are working. At the same time you will develop your knowledge as well as improve your English and maths.
You will be paid the set Apprenticeship Wage of £3.40 per hour. (£3.50 from April 2017) Some employers pay more.
You could progress onto the next qualification level, stay in employment or consider college courses.
