Did you know 90% of apprentices stay in employment after finishing their apprenticeship? Depending on the candidate you might progress onto a Level 3 Qualification, where you would be employed for another 12 – 18 months.
You can start an apprenticeship aged 16 when you leave full time education.
You can apply for an apprenticeship if you have a degree however you are not eligible for funding, therefore your employer would have to pay for your training costs.
There is no set length for an apprenticeship, it can take between one and four years to complete. This depends on the level of qualification you are working on.
You will work towards gaining a nationally recognised qualification, which will vary depending on your job role. Your qualification will be achieved through observation and guidance from our Training Assessors.
