Apprenticeships explained

An apprenticeship is a genuine job with an accompanying assessment and skills development programme. It is a way for individuals to earn while they learn, gaining valuable skills and knowledge in a specific job role.

In addition to building a business's skills base, apprenticeships are particularly cost-effective as a form of training, because young people are making a contribution to the workplace while they are learning.


The benefits of hiring an apprentice

Hiring an apprentice is a productive and effective way for you to grow talent and develop a motivated, skilled and qualified workforce.

Recent government reforms to the way apprenticeships are delivered and funded have created a wider range of high quality apprenticeships, more aligned to employers' needs

Types of Apprenticeships

We offer several types of Apprenticeships for different levels of study and application
