How an apprenticeship can be the beginning of a long and successful career

You get paid to learn

You’ll earn a salary while gaining invaluable experience and expert knowledge, which will set you up for career success. Unlike uni, you won’t be left with debt to pay off.

There’s plenty of choice

There are many different types of apprenticeships out there, be it sports, creative, business, tech or construction, so you can find a programme that suits your interests and chosen career path.

High-quality training

During your apprenticeship, you’ll gain industry-recognised qualifications to build your skills and knowledge, and help you demonstrate your value to future employers.

On-the-job experience

An apprenticeship is a great way to kickstart your career. Learning ‘on the job’ means networking opportunities, support from the employer, social benefits, and financial perks like paid annual leave.

Learn from the experts

You’ll work alongside people who know the ins and outs of the role and how the sector works, giving you first-hand insight and an understanding of the job that you just can’t get from the classroom.
