An apprenticeship provides you with the opportunity to earn while you learn, whilst also working towards a nationally-recognised qualification.
You will be employed by an employer, providing you with the opportunity to put into practice what you are being taught at college. This will help you succeed in your job and develop your career. You will have a mentor to support you at work and an assessor from the college who will guide you towards completing your qualification.
An apprenticeship can take between one to five years to complete depending on the level. There is no upper age limit – as long as you are over 16 and have the right credentials, you will be eligible for your chosen apprenticeship.
