Apprenticeships

What is an apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships combine practical training in a job with study.

As an apprentice you will:

  • work alongside experienced staff
  • gain job-specific skills
  • earn a wage and get holiday pay
  • get time for study related to your job role (usually one day a week)
  • some apprenticeships can also give you an extra qualification
