Apprenticeships can be a fantastic route into employment or Higher Education, whether you’re starting your career, want a change or have decided to upskill in your current job. As an apprentice you’ll be training for a specific industry such as construction or retail, working in a real job while also completing valuable qualifications in a college, university, or training centre. During your apprenticeship you learn, gain experience, and get paid, enjoying benefits like holiday pay and pension contributions.
Apprenticeships are available in lots of different sectors and there are different levels of apprenticeship depending on your previous qualifications. You can see more information on the different levels in our graphics below.
