What is an Apprenticeship?

An apprenticeship is a training and education programme. It mixes learning in a college or training institution with work-based learning in a company. At least half of apprenticeship learning is done on the job.

As an apprentice, you earn while you learn. You have a formal employment contract, and you are paid a salary during your apprenticeship training. Apprenticeships can last between two and four years.

Apprenticeships also lead to internationally recognised qualifications. These range from level 6 to level 10 on the National Framework of Qualifications
