What is an apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships are essentially a qualification and job rolled into one. The skills and knowledge you learn from your tutors will help you in your job role and the skills and knowledge you learn whilst working will help you achieve the qualification.

Apprenticeships can be undertaken by anyone, at any age, at any stage in their work life. They can help those starting out in the world of work, those who have worked for years and want a change, those who want to develop and many many more.
