Benefits of an apprenticeship

Choosing an apprenticeship is a great way to get a head start in your career. Benefits include:

•  Earn a wage whilst working towards a nationally recognised qualification that is valued by employers.
•  The skills you gain are directly relevant to your job role, allowing you to tailor your training to your chosen career.
•  Learning is flexible. Many apprenticeships are delivered solely in the workplace though some college attendance may be required.
•  The chance to a range of transferable skills such as communication and team work.
•  The opportunity to gain essential knowledge and qualifications in English, Maths and IT.
•  Apprenticeships for 16-18 years old are fully funded by the Government so there is no cost for the professional training you will
   receive. For apprentices aged over 19, a one-off certification fee may be payable by your employer.
