What is an apprenticeship?
An apprenticeship allows you to earn while you learn and gain a qualification at the same time. An apprenticeship is a real job with formal training that will enable you to earn a salary whilst gaining a nationally recognised qualification.
Apprenticeships are open to individuals aged 16 or over, including adults looking to retrain or gain a qualification in the industry in which they already work. The minimum wage for apprentices aged 16-18 is £3.50 per hour. The same applies if you’re 19 and over and in the first year of your apprenticeship, after that you are entitled to the National Minimum Wage. However many employers pay more than this. Pay is dependent on the industry, location and type of apprenticeship.
As an apprentice you will be working alongside industry experts in a real work environment, whilst gaining the knowledge, skills and behaviours you need to succeed in your chosen career.
Your workforce is central to your success. Apprentices can give your business the edge over your competitors. We provide a high-quality, rapidly growing range of apprenticeship programmes, and work closely with employers to find the right apprentice to enhance their business.
Apprenticeships offer huge advantages to your business. They are cost effective, give you access to new and talented employees who want to learn and progress and they support your skills requirements. Apprenticeships are not just about new hires, as your existing staff can also retrain or upskill, providing motivation, job satisfaction and new skills in your organisation.
Apprenticeships provide a nationally accredited and recognised qualification and can lead to higher level progression routes. The qualification, including assessment, is attained in the workplace with minimal disruption and maximum impact.
