What is an apprenticeship?
Apprenticeships combine on the job training in a specific job role alongside study for work related qualifications. Learning could be online, day release or block release with a training provider.
If you are considering a career change an apprenticeship in the area you want to work in could be the ideal route in, as it can help you give you the skills, experience and qualifications to get in, whilst being paid.
