What is an apprenticeship?

An apprenticeship is a real job where you learn, gain experience, and get paid. You’re an employee with a contract of employment and holiday leave. By the end of an apprenticeship, you'll have the right skills and knowledge needed for your chosen career. It can take between one and 6 years to complete an apprenticeship depending on which one you choose, what level it is and your previous experience. It’s funded from contributions made by the government and your employer. As an apprentice you’ll:

  • learn and train for a specific job
  • get paid and receive holiday leave  
  • get hands-on experience in a real job
  • study for at least 20% of your working hours – usually at a college, university or with a training provider  
  • complete assessments during and at the end of your apprenticeship
  • be on a career path with lots of future potential

Additional information

Levels of an apprenticeship

Each apprenticeship has a level and an equivalent education level. You can start an apprenticeship at any level. 

Depending on the level, some apprenticeships may:

  • require previous qualifications such as an English or maths GCSE
  • give extra training in the English or maths skills needed so you’re at the right level
  • Apprenticeships are mapped against the equivalent education level (see the table below)

Why should I enrol onto an Apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships are an exciting option – you get hands-on training and the chance to put your skills into practice. 

  • Earn while you learn
  • No student loans to worry about, Government will fund your training
  • Develop new skills, knowledge, and behaviours that you employer requires
