Key benefits of an apprenticeship
There are loads of reasons to snap up a quality apprenticeship, including the opportunity to:
- Work alongside experienced staff and gain job-specific skills (learn the ropes from the experts)
- Earn a salary and get holiday pay and other employee benefits
- Study towards a related qualification that's recognised and valued by employers nationwide
- Enhance career prospects (23% of former apprentices had been promoted within 12 months of finishing!)
Depending on existing skills / qualifications you can apply for one of three types of apprenticeship:
- Intermediate (level 2) equivalent to 5 GCSEs
- Advanced (level 3) equivalent to 2 A levels
- Higher (level 4 and above or a foundation degree)
How will I learn?
