Apprenticeships are a great way to start a career they can open up permanent job opportunities in a range of industry sectors. Not only do they provide vital skills that employers look for when taking on new staff, they also allow you to earn a wage and develop your personal and professional skills.
All apprenticeships are directly linked to a vacancy with an employer who is looking to expand their workforce. This means you will be placed with an employer from day one, gaining mounts of work experience as well as your nationally recognised qualifications. They are a great alternative to college or university and according to the National Apprenticeships Service, apprenticeships are considered to be the Gold Standard for employers.
Apprenticeships take a minimum of 12 months to complete depending on what specialisms you choose.
