What is an Apprenticeship?

An apprenticeship is a job with training. As an apprentice you will work for an employer and earn a salary, as well as gaining qualifications and skills. Many business owners view apprenticeships as the first step towards building a career in your chosen industry.

Apprenticeships cover lots of different industries, meaning that you can find a job which matches your skills, interests and even hobbies. If you’re not sure what sort of career suits you, visit our live jobs board to see what opportunities are currently available near you!

Some types of jobs are in high demand, but securing an entry level apprenticeship can help you to progress and build a successful career in your chosen industry.

Contrary to popular belief, you do not need five A-C GCSE’s to become an apprentice. Many employers consider enthusiasm, energy and a positive attitude to be just as important as your academic achievements!
