An Apprenticeship is a real job which allows you to earn while you learn, whilst gaining a nationally recognised qualification. They are open to anyone over the age of 16, living in England.
Apprenticeships take between one and five years to complete and are available in 1,500 occupations across 170 industries varying from construction to manufacturing through to IT and the creative and digital sectors.
The minimum wage for apprentices is £3.50 per hour (from 01 April 2017), but many employers pay more than this, especially once you have been with them for a little while.
All Apprenticeships will include elements of on the job and off the job training leading to industry recognised standards or qualifications. Some Apprenticeships will require an assessment at the end of the programme.
