Apprenticeships combine hands-on work with the opportunity to train and earn qualifications. Training can take place either on work premises, online or at a training provider over an average of 6 hours per week (for those working a 30-hour week).
An apprenticeship is a minimum of 12 months, although the exact length depends on the chosen sector and level.
Apprenticeships are fantastic for building new talent pipelines, preparing new employees with the skills needed in your business and upskilling your current workforce. Apprentices can be of any age (16 years or over) and work in almost any sector. They complete meaningful work to support your business, as outlined in your chosen apprenticeship.
