What is an Apprenticeship?

An Apprenticeship is an excellent way of becoming qualified while gaining experience. It is a framework of qualifications, which enables you to earn while you learn, and pick up practical skills along the way.

An Apprenticeship is usually made up of:

Certificate/Diplomaa competency-based qualification which is assessed against your current job role
Technical Certificatewhich gives you knowledge and understanding of the subject
Functional Skillsto ensure your English, Maths and ICT are operating at a level linked to the over-all qualification

You can apply to be an apprentice if you live in England, you are over 16 and you are not in full-time education.
