What is an Apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships allow you to work whilst studying, allowing you to combine on-the-job training with classroom learning.

'An apprenticeship, lasts for a minimum of 12 months, combines hands-on work with the opportunity to train and obtain qualifications. It’s also a paid position, so you earn while you learn. At least 20% of your time is set aside for learning, usually at a college, university or training provider.

The rest of your time is spent applying your knowledge and skills in the actual workplace, doing the job that you set out to get. At the end of it, you'll gain official certification, which will be equivalent to traditional qualifications.' (
