About apprenticeships

An apprenticeship gives you hands-on experience of the workplace, a salary and the opportunity to gain qualifications while you work.

Apprenticeships are an increasingly popular career option, particularly for people finishing school or college. They offer the chance to ‘earn as you learn’ and gain the skills to get a head start in your future career.
