Apprenticeships can provide you with an excellent opportunity to gain qualifications specific to the industry you want to progress in, at the same time as you earning a wage. As an apprentice, you will work on-the-job, learn from professionals, and gain practical skills you can use on a day-to-day basis. Apprenticeships are fully funded by the Skills Funding Agency for 16-18 year olds, with other conditions apply to those over 19 years old. Apprenticeships can last from as few as 13 months to 48, depending on the qualification you wish to pursue.
