What is an apprenticeship?
Apprenticeships give you real workplace experience and the opportunity to earn while you learn. They are tailored specifically to the skills and experience that employers are looking for, so you will have a major advantage when applying to similar jobs in the future.

As an apprentice you will typically work four days a week and you may come into college one day per week.

Apprenticeships are the ideal option for young people who want to get a head start in their chosen profession and earn money at the same time.
