With an Apprenticeship, you can earn money while you’re learning and gain recognised qualifications as you work.

As employees, Apprentices earn a wage and work alongside experienced staff to gain job-specific skills.

Off the job, usually on a day-release basis, Apprentices receive training to work towards nationally recognised qualifications. Apprenticeships can take between one and four years to complete depending on the level of Apprenticeship, the Apprentices’ ability and the industry sector.
