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.
Apprenticeships bring many benefits, including:
- earning a salary
- getting paid holidays
- receiving training
- gaining qualifications
- learning job-specific skills
- better employment and salary prospects.
