An apprenticeship is a qualification that helps you gain valuable experience and skills whilst also giving you the opportunity to earn while you learn.
Becoming an apprentice gives you the opportunity to gain hands-on experience that the classroom can’t provide and work towards a qualification at the same time. You'll learn on the job, supported by a mentor in the workplace.
