An Apprenticeship is a real job with training so learners can earn while they learn and achieve nationally recognised qualifications.

Apprenticeships provide a great way to combine work with study, enabling learners to gain experience at the same time as taking nationally recognised qualifications, completing on programme learning and earning a salary. In all cases, the apprentice would be employed to perform a specific job role and, within the same period, would study the subject specific to their Apprenticeship at a college or training provider. Apprenticeships are becoming an increasingly popular alternative to university, with around half a million Apprenticeship starts a year. With a continued push to ensure that Apprenticeships have the same status and esteem as a degree, they’re becoming even more relevant in today’s workplace. They have a great fit with employers both large and small, as well as offering career progression opportunities that can provide a route into higher education.

  • Business Administrator
  • Early Years
  • Beauty, Hair and Nail
