Help a young person get into work

Apprenticeships offer a real alternative to university without the fees.

What is an apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships are professional pathways that enable individuals to learn skills, knowledge and behaviour whilst on the job. An apprentice takes on a real role within an organisation, and gets structured on and off the job skills and training with a qualification at the end.

Anyone aged 16 or over can apply to become an apprentice, whether you are unemployed, leaving school or college, already in work, or wanting to start a new career.
