Earn while you learn
Apprenticeships allow you to work, earn and gain a qualification in the area you are working in.
How you study can vary from apprenticeship to apprenticeship, some require you to attend college one day a week, others require you to do all of your studying at work, whilst some are a blend of the two.
Apprenticeships are available for level two to degree level; it typically takes one to two years to complete however some may take longer due to the nature of the programme.
If you feel you’re not ready for an apprenticeship, a traineeship is a course designed to prepare you for one. A traineeship is a 26 week programme, which includes work experience, and focusses on providing the skills and experience employers are looking for.
