Apprenticeships are for people who want to work and train at the same time.

Apprenticeships are open to all age groups above 16 years-old whether you are just leaving school, have been working for years or are looking to start a new career. You just need to be living in England and not taking part in full-time education.

As employees, apprentices earn a wage and work alongside experienced staff to gain job-specific skills. Off the job, usually on a day-release basis, apprentices receive training to work towards related nationally recognised qualifications. Anyone living in England, over 16 years-old and not in full-time education can apply.

There are three ways of applying for Apprenticeships.

  1. Applying through the National Apprenticeship Service
  2. Applying through a training provider/further education college
  3. Applying for vacancies with local companies
