What is an apprenticeship?

An apprenticeship is a paid job where the employee learns and gains valuable experiences.

Alongside on-the-job training, apprentices spend at least 20% of their working hours completing off-the-job learning which leads to a nationally recognised qualification.

An apprenticeship includes:

  • Paid employment with annual leave
  • Hands on experience in a sector/role of interest
  • At least 20% off-the-job training
  • Formal assessment which leads to a nationally recognised qualification
