What is an apprenticeship?
Apprenticeships offer you the chance to earn while you learn – that means you are employed but are given time during the working week to work with a training provider to achieve a vocational qualification that will help you to do your job.
Apprenticeships are individually tailored to your needs, so as well as your vocational qualification, your training provider and employer will work with you to develop a bespoke training plan which will make sure you have all the skills you need to progress in your career. This could include essential skills in Maths, English and ICT and/or specialist skills that are required in your chosen career.
Apprenticeships normally take between two and four years to complete and we will cover the cost of your apprenticeship training.
