An apprenticeship is a work-based training programme, which leads to a nationally recognised qualification. Anyone living in England over the age of 16 who has completed statutory secondary education can apply.
You can also apply if you hold a degree, as long as the apprenticeship qualification is at a higher level or significantly different from your degree subject. If you have a learning disability, you may be eligible to study English or Math’s functional skills to Entry Level 3, which is lower than the required Level 2. Ask your training provider about this.
Apprenticeships bring many benefits, including:
- earning a salary
- getting paid holidays
- receiving training
- gaining qualifications
- learning job-specific skills
- better employment and salary prospects.
