An apprenticeship is an opportunity to work and study at the same time - time is spent doing on-the-job training and the rest is spent working towards a qualification.
Apprenticeships have often been thought of for those first starting out in their careers, but they now offer far more opportunities. Apprenticeships aren't just for school leavers, while this remains a great choice when starting out, an apprenticeship also supports growth within an existing role or career change.
The qualification an apprentice can achieve could vary from the equivalent to GCSEs, to a master's degree depending on the level of apprenticeship taken. There are different types and levels of apprenticeships, each level apprenticeship will have different entry requirements and may last from one year to three or four years for degree level.
Anyone studying an apprenticeship must:
- Be employed in a job - they may be existing employees or a new hire
- Work towards achieving an approved apprenticeship standard or apprenticeship framework
- Undergo training that lasts at least 12 months
- Spend at least 20% of their time on off-the-job-training
- Be paid the relevant national minimum wage, or the appropriate wage reflective of the position occupied while studying for an apprenticeship
