What’s an apprenticeship?

It’s a real job, with real training, meaning you can earn while you learn and gain a nationally recognised qualification.

Apprenticeships combine practical training in a job with study.

As an apprentice you’ll:

  • work alongside experienced staff
  • gain job-specific skills
  • earn a wage and get holiday pay
  • get time for study related to your role (usually one day a week)

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