Leeds Apprenticeship Hub

Looking for an Apprenticeship? Wanting some advice on becoming an apprentice?

There are lots of benefits to doing an Apprenticeship. You can earn while you learn, and learn in a way that is best suited to you. For more details on the benefits of an Apprenticeship, please watch this short video.

Key benefits of being an apprentice include:

  • Earning a salary - apprentices do real jobs for real employers. If you are entering work for the first time, you will start earning from day one of your apprenticeship. 
  • Learn on the job - apprentices build up practical and theoretical skills, competencies and knowledge whilst gaining qualifications.
  • Support during training - your employer or training provider's role is to ensure that your training fits your personal requirements. They will offer a structured programme that gives you the skills needed to the job well and satisfy national standards.
  • Prospects - Apprenticeships can be demanding but they are very rewarding and can lead to a a successful career in your chosen area.

If you are interested in becoming an apprentice, please click on the Leeds Pathways link and complete the expression of interest form. We will then seek to match you to an appropriate opportunity.
