For Learners

How are apprenticeships designed to enhance your career prospects?

Apprenticeships are carefully designed programmes which enhance your skill set to match that of the industry, or organisation you’re working within.

The benefits of an apprenticeship:

  • Get paid while you learn
  • Gain skills which apply to your role
  • Your employer pays for your training
  • You can dedicate 20% of your time working towards your qualification
  • You can up-skill or develop in your current role in order to progress your career

Why apply?

  • Earn a real wage;
  • Be trained in the skills employers want;

  • Apprentices enjoy marked salary increases when they complete their training, and those completing a higher apprenticeship could see increased earnings of an estimated £150,000 over their lifetime.
