About Apprenticeships


An apprenticeship is an in-work training programme that allows you to work with professionals in a specific industry, earn a good weekly wage and gain accredited qualifications in that field.


It gives you a solid foundation of knowledge, skills, qualifications and experience to help you kick start your career in your chosen occupation.


Apprenticeships are a great option for people who like a more practical approach to learning and are suitable if you are looking for your first job or are already in employment.
