Information about apprenticeships
On this page, you will find information about:

National Apprenticeship Week starts on 7 February. The Parents’ Guide to National Apprenticeship Week contains information on apprenticeships, universities, and revision techniques.
What is an apprenticeship?
Apprenticeships combine practical training in a job with study. They lead to recognised qualifications from level 2 (the same as a GCSE) to level 7 (the same as a bachelor’s or master’s degree).
You work alongside experienced staff, earning a wage and gaining job-specific skills.
There’s a lot more information about apprenticeships on the government’s guide to apprenticeships.
On that site you will find out about how they work, whether or not you are eligible, and how the courses usually work.
There are a lot of apprenticeship vacancies posted on the government website. These contain information about the employer, the qualification you will study towards, and the training provider you will be studying with.
