Section 4 – Apprenticeships

On an apprenticeship, you’re employed to do a real job while studying for a formal qualification – usually for one day a week either at a college or training centre. Inclusive or supported apprenticeships allow the apprentice to use an Entry Level 3 qualification in English or Maths as a lower entry route.

Apprenticeships are structured training programmes which give you a chance to work towards a qualification. They help you gain the skills and knowledge you need. Apprenticeships give you experience in the working world. The hands-on training gives you a real chance to put your skills into practice and helps you to gain more confidence in a working environment. You earn while you learn. You’ll be paid a salary by your employer.

You can contact local colleges and training providers to see if they are offering supported or inclusive apprenticeships or use the Government’s Find an Apprenticeship website. Please use the links to find out more.
