APPRENTICESHIP

On an apprenticeship, you’re employed to do a real job while studying for a formal qualification. By the end of your apprenticeship, you’ll hopefully have gained the skills and knowledge needed to either succeed in your chosen career or progress to the next apprenticeship level

There are four different levels of apprenticeship:

  • Intermediate– equivalent to five good GCSE passes.
  • Advanced– equivalent to two A-level passes.
  • Higher– equivalent to the first stages of higher education, such as a foundation degree or HNC/HND.
  • Degree– comparable to a Bachelors or Masters degree.

Most job sectors offer apprenticeship opportunities in the UK, with a wide range of specific roles on offer within each.

Designed for people aged 16 to 24 who don’t yet have the appropriate skills or experience, traineeships provide the essential work preparation training, English, maths and work experience needed to secure an apprenticeship or employment
