Why an apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships are a great option to ‘earn whilst you learn’, enabling you to spend the majority (80%) of your time ‘on the job’ working alongside experienced individuals & teams within an organisation gaining you important industry experience. The other 20% of your time gives you the opportunity to attain further key learning of the knowledge, skills & behaviours to become even more competent & confident in your role, gaining a nationally recognised apprenticeship along the way.

What is an apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships combine practical training in a job with study.

As an apprentice you’ll:
•    be an employee earning a wage and getting holiday pay
•    work alongside experienced staff
•    gain job-specific skills
•    get time for training and study related to your role (at least 20% of your normal working hours)

Apprenticeships take 1 to 5 years to complete depending on their level.
