LNK – What is an apprenticeship?

When you start work as an apprentice you are in a real job.

An Apprenticeship is a real job with training so you can earn while you learn and pick up some nationally recognised qualifications as you go. Apprenticeships take between one and four years to complete and cover 1500 job roles in a wide range of industries, from things like engineering to finance advice, veterinary nursing to accountancy.

Key benefits:

  •      •     Earning a salary
  •      •     Training in the skills employers want
  •      •     Excellent progression opportunities, whether looking to study further or climb the ranks within the workplace
  •      •     Increased future earning potential. Apprentices enjoy marked salary increases when they complete their training
  •      •     Better long term salary prospects (those with an Advanced Apprenticeship earn around £117,000** more than those without, over the course of their career)
  •      •     Learning at a pace suited to the individual with the support of a mentor
  •      •     Paid holiday
