Apprenticeships are a great way to get a career started. The qualifications are available at different levels of study, including qualifications for school leavers right up to higher-level apprenticeships which are the equivalent of a master’s degree. Apprenticeships offer practical, on-the-job training so they are great if you love getting hands-on with work or prefer to learn outside of the classroom.

As an apprentice, you will be paid a salary and be part of a team but you will also benefit from dedicated time during the week to study for your qualification.
