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.
