What is an Apprenticeship?


An apprenticeship gives you hands-on experience, a salary and an opportunity to train while you work. You’ll get:

  • A real job and opportunity to gain qualifications up to degree level

  • A competitive salary whilst all your training is paid for

  • Hands on experience and opportunity to learn skills that employers want

Who can do an apprenticeship?

Anyone over the age of 16, living in England and not in full-time education. There’s no upper age limit and you could even have a job already, using it as an opportunity to gain qualifications and additional skills.

What can I do an apprenticeship in?

Apprenticeships are available across a huge range of industries. They include areas like law, finance, education, sales, marketing and IT as well as more traditional subjects. Qualifications can be from Level 2 (GCSE equivalent) to Level 7 (Masters Degree equivalent).

How much will I get paid?

It depends on your age, experience, job role, industry and location. You’ll get at least the apprenticeship minimum wage in year 1 and National Minimum Wage in year 2. Many employers choose to pay more.  All your tuition and qualification costs will be covered too, including degree level apprenticeships.
