Apprenticeships are a valuable form of education. They allow people to study and train in the workplace so, whilst studying, you will be earning a national minimum apprentice wage. It will be a period of training that allows you to learn a particular skill while studying for a formal qualification. It will help move your career forward, by gaining professional experience, status and accreditation.
Apprenticeships are structured training programmes that give you chance to work in a formal work environment. You are a paid employee of the company that trains you. You will work alongside a training advisor who will ensure you are comfortable with your learning/working environment, and a tutor who will support you during the week. This could be in the workplace, off-site or via e-learning.
Every apprenticeship role is different, and every working day will vary, depending on your job. It will be challenging and stimulating, helping you to acquire new skills, knowledge and judgement.
