To get your career started you usually need a combination of experience and qualifications. An apprenticeship gives you both, by combining on the job training with study (usually one day a week) meaning you can earn while you learn. With some apprenticeships you can even get a degree.
It usually takes between one and four years to complete an apprenticeship depending on which level you take. Apprenticeships are available across a wide range of industries and many high quality, prestigious companies offer them.
The minimum wage for apprentices aged 16-18 is £3.50 per hour. The same applies if you’re 19 and over and in the first year of your apprenticeship; after that you are entitled to the National Minimum Wage. However, many employers pay more than this.
