An Apprenticeship is a paid job, with a contract of employment that offers off-the-job training.

You will have time away from the workplace to work  towards job-specific qualifications which will help you to launch  your career  

You can start an Apprenticeship whether you are leaving School or College, want a career change, or are upskilling in your current job.

Higher and Degree Apprenticeships

Higher apprenticeships are equivalent to a foundation degree and above. Degree apprenticeships are equivalent to a full bachelor’s and Master’s. Both routes of apprenticeship gives you the opportunity to gain a paid-for degree while getting industry experience and earning a salary. These apprenticeships combine work with study and may include a work-based, academic or combined qualification or a professional qualification relevant to the industry.
