Careers - Apprenticeships


Earning & Learning

An apprenticeship is a real job and anyone over the age of 16 can become an apprentice.  While completing an apprenticeship you will be paid a wage, do a real job, work alongside other employees and take part in training. An apprenticeship can take between one and six years to complete depending on the apprenticeship you choose. An apprenticeship is a great way to kick start your career, especially for those who know the area of work they would like to enter. Apprenticeships can be studied at Levels 2, 3 and Degree Level.
