Apprenticeships are an exciting route for individuals of all ages (16+) and abilities, offering a uniquely valuable opportunity to gain in-work experience, develop industry specific skills and achieve a recognised qualification. Apprentices receive the majority of their training in the work environment whilst being supported by a training provider to achieve qualifications. There are four levels of apprenticeship available: Intermediate, Advanced, Higher or Degree, and can take between one and four years to complete. Many prestigious companies, both large and small, offer apprenticeships across a wide range of industries.
