WHAT ARE APPRENTICESHIPS & TRAINEESHIPS?

 

In an apprenticeship you can 'earn while you learn' - receive hands-on training and the chance to put your skills into practice, while studying for a recognised qualification in your chosen field.

 

Apprenticeships are available at multiple levels. From school leavers, people upskilling in their careers and complete career changes. There are hundreds to choose from and some include a qualification, like a degree. 

Traineeships are a 'skills development programme' that includes a work placement, designed to prepare young people for an apprenticeship or for entry into employment.
