About apprenticeships

Apprenticeships offer a golden key to help unlock the potential for developing skills. Apprenticeships can also be an opportunity for progressing in your career if you’ve already had a foot or two on the corporate ladder.

Apprenticeships aren’t just for school leavers: you’re never too old to pick up new skills or ramp up your career.

All across the UK there are opportunities for people to start apprenticeships at blue chip, household-name businesses, nationwide employers like the NHS or smaller local ones.

Rolls Royce. Tesco’s. The Royal Airforce. BAE Systems. The National Health Service. The BBC. Balfour Beatty. The National Trust. Channel Four. Vauxhall. The Premier League. And that local plumber.

There is a vast number or apprenticeship roles to choose from (no astronauts or rock star vacancies yet, as far as we know) waiting for someone to seize the opportunity and start working at a job they love.

The training is debt-free because the costs are covered by the government and your employer.

Apprenticeships will allow you to earn while you learn (including holiday pay), training both on-site and away from your working environment. Assessment is based on your performance in the job, and a recent survey has shown that 92 per cent are satisfied with what the course has done for them.

Your ideal career could be waiting for you around the corner. You have nothing to lose from finding out more about how apprenticeships work, how much you get paid, what kind of skills you can learn and how delighted tens of thousands of apprenticeships are that they made the right decision.
