What is an apprenticeship?
Apprenticeships allow young people to gain on the job experience while gaining a qualification in job roles that they are passionate about and want to develop a career in. Becoming an apprentice means that they can earn while they learn by receiving a regular wage while still benefiting from education. Training usually takes place one day per week with one of our assessors or trainers where they will receive tuition and support and be set coursework to carry out towards their qualification. Where the apprentice didn't obtain a Grade C or 4 (in the new system) in their GCSE's they will be able to receive additional tuition in Maths, English and ICT.
