What is an apprentice?

Want to earn while you learn? Feel ready to take a step onto the career ladder rather than head onto higher education? If so, an apprenticeship is perfect for you! If you are aged 16 or over, living in England and not in full-time education you are eligible to become an apprentice.

Apprenticeships combine study with practical on-the-job training. You’ll work alongside experienced staff, gain job-specific skills, earn a wage and get paid holidays, all while working towards a job related qualification. Apprenticeships take 1 to 4 years to complete depending on their subject level.

From 1 April 2017, the National Minimum Apprenticeship Wage increased to £3.50 per hour. This rate applies to apprentices under 19 and those aged 19 or over who are in their first year of their apprenticeship.

Apprenticeships can give you a real advantage when it comes to employability. The experiences and skills you gain alongside your qualification are extremely appealing to employers.
