You may like to consider an apprenticeship as a way of training for a career.

An apprenticeship is a job, so you will have an employer who you work for and who pays your wages; and because all apprentices undertake training, you will also have a training provider who supports you to achieve a nationally recognised qualification.

Apprenticeship key facts

  • You must live in England, not be in full-time education and be at least 16 years old to start an apprenticeship. There is no upper age limit
  • You will be employed for at least 30 hours per week and for at least one year
  • You’ll do most of your training in the workplace, with support from your training provider
  • The qualification you complete as part of your apprenticeship links to the job you are doing e.g. retail apprenticeship = retail qualification
  • Apprenticeships are offered at several levels:
    • Intermediate Apprenticeship (NVQ Level 2) the qualification you will study is equivalent to five GCSEs
    • Advanced Apprenticeship (Level 3) is equivalent to two A-Levels
    • Higher Apprenticeships (Levels 4 & 5) is equivalent to a foundation degree
    • Degree Apprenticeships (Levels 6 & 7) is a full degree

  • If you’re not quite ready for a full apprenticeship (for example, you might not be sure if you could complete a Level 2 qualification) then you could complete a Traineeship to help you prepare
  • Apprenticeship vacancies are advertised throughout the year and can be started at any time
