What is an apprenticeship?

An apprenticeship is a real job where you learn, gain experience and get paid. You're an employee with a contract of employment and holiday leave. By the end of an apprenticeship, you'll have the right skills and knowledge needed for your chosen career. 


It can take between one and 6 years to complete an apprenticeship depending on which one you choose, what level it is and your previous experience. It's funded from contributions made by the government and your employer. To find out more click here.



You can also research apprenticeships using: The Apprenticeship Guide.

Their website is a one-stop introduction to the world of apprenticeships. Search for hundreds of apprenticeship profiles, explaining the roles, responsibilities and rewards.
