Advice about apprenticeships or traineeships


  • Apprenticeships give you a mix of practical training in a job as well as study at a local college. An apprentice usually works beside experienced staff 4 days per week to gain skills in doing the work. Apprentices also spend one day a week studying for a qualification in that type of work. Apprenticeships take between 1 and 4 years to complete, and you will get a wage while you do one.

  • There are 3 levels of difficulty in apprenticeships: Intermediate level is the same as doing 5 GCSEs; Advanced are the same as 2 A level passes, and Higher is the level of a Foundation Degree.
