What is an apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships give you the opportunity to work for a real employer alongside experienced staff.
 
You will earn a salary and gain a qualification as well as valuable workplace experience and relevant job-specific skills.

You can apply for an apprenticeship if you are:
  • aged over 16
  • eligible to work in England
  • not in full time education.
Find out more about apprenticeships on the government's website.
