A Modern Apprenticeship is an exciting and rewarding pathway which benefits both the apprentice and the employer in so many ways.

Becoming an apprentice gives you the opportunity to earn while you learn, gain valuable, hands-on experience which the classroom can’t provide and work towards a qualification at the same time.

For employers, taking on a Modern Apprentice is a great way to tailor training to the needs of the business with either a new employee or existing employees who are looking to upskill. The funding available makes training a cost effective way to boost business, productivity and help to develop the workforce.
