Building a career

There are thousands of different types of apprenticeships available which cover almost every type of job possible.

Apprenticeships are the first step in building a career in your chosen industry and choosing a business or industry that interests you is just as important as the job you do as an apprentice.

An apprenticeship looks great on your CV. It shows future employers that you are committed to a career in your chosen industry and can act as a stepping stone in building a successful career. According to the latest Government research, one in three apprentices will receive a promotion within twelve months of completing their apprenticeship.

Many senior businessmen and women started their careers as an apprentice. Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver, fashion designer Karen Millen, and Formula One engineer Ross Brawn, all began their careers as apprentices!
