Earn while you learn. 

Apprenticeships are a great way to get a foot on the employment ladder combining practical on the job training, with study.

As an apprentice you'll:

  • work alongside experienced staff
  • gain job-specific skills
  • earn a wage and get holiday pay
  • get time for study related to your role (usually one day a week)

Apprenticeships take 2 to 5 years to complete depending on their level.

To find out more, including information about pay and holidays, go to GOV.UK: Apprenticeships.

Who can apply

To apply for an apprenticeship you'll need to be:

  • 16 or over
  • living in England
  • not in full-time education
