What is an Apprenticeship?
Apprenticeships are available for young people aged 16-23 years old who are not currently in a job and have little work experience, but who are focused on work or the prospect of it in the near future. Apprenticeships provide a mix of practical, on-the-job experience with classroom learning where you will study the theory behind your chosen career path. They will normally last between 12 and 18 months.
There are many benefits to taking an Apprenticeship route, such as earning a salary, gaining a nationally recognised qualification and receiving workplace benefits such as paid holidays.
