Apprenticeships give you the chance to earn and learn at the same time and take between one to four years to complete.
What is an apprenticeship?
Apprenticeships are a mixture of on-the-job and off-the-job training for young people and adults 16 and over.
- On-the-job, you will gain key skills like working in teams, problem-solving, communication and using new technology
- Off-the-job, you will spend time working towards a recognised apprenticeship framework
To do an apprenticeship you must
- be at least 16 years old,
- live in England
- not be in full-time education
There are lots of apprenticeships available, at different levels and in different industries.
You will be paid, and learn "on the job" as well as spending some time each week at college, or with another learning or training provider, studying towards your qualification. Apprenticeship levels range from Level 2 (equivalent to five good GCSEs) to Level 7 (equivalent to a masters degree)
