Information for Apprentices

 


There has never been a better time to consider an apprenticeship. Young people can ‘get in and go far’ with an apprenticeship at some of the country’s biggest and brightest companies. They can gain the skills and knowledge they need to succeed, in some cases up to degree level, while working and earning. You can apply for an apprenticeship if you live in England and are over 16 years old. There are various levels of apprenticeship that can be undertaken depending on your current skills and qualifications.
All apprenticeships are real jobs so all apprentices earn a salary. You must be paid at least the national minimum apprenticeship wage – and many employers pay significantly more. Your employer will be there to support you once your apprenticeship begins. It is in your employer’s interest to help you succeed and many have formal structures to help you get the most out of your apprenticeship. As an apprentice you will be doing a real job in a real workplace – and getting paid for it. You will have responsibilities to your employer and your colleagues and you’ll be working as part of a team.

Every apprenticeship role is different, but you can expect your working day to be varied, stimulating and challenging. But whatever your role you know that everybody is working towards the same goal – your success and the success of the business you are working in.
