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 vs. Full Time College course:

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.

  • Earn a wage
  • Hands-on experience
  • Recognised qualification

Plus, as an apprentice you are more likely to earn more money throughout your career than someone who didn’t take an apprenticeship.

What is a pre-apprenticeship and courses?

If you’re not quite ready for an apprenticeship, then don’t worry - our pre-apprenticeships and courses are the ideal stepping stone.
