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.

Apprenticeship levy transfer
Applications are now open for employers seeking funding to pay for apprenticeship training.
Employers paying into the apprenticeship levy can now transfer up to 25% of their annual levy funding pot to other organisations which will pay for the training costs of apprenticeship qualifications.
These changes mean that West Sussex County Council can support organisations in West Sussex to boost the skills and knowledge of new and existing employees across the county.
