An apprenticeship offers the opportunity to gain a nationally, increasingly internationally, recognised set of qualifications through practical training on and off the job. Apprentices gain job-specific skills, work alongside experienced staff whilst earning a wage.
An apprenticeship really does offer you the best of both worlds.
As an apprentice you are an employee, with employee’s rights, wages and holiday entitlements.
In addition to earning whilst you learn, on completing your apprenticeship you’ll also have solid industry experience and valuable references on your CV.
