What is an apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships combine practical training in a job with study.

As an apprentice you will:

Work alongside experienced staff

Gain job-specific skills

Earn a wage and get holiday pay

Study towards a related qualification (usually one day a week)

Apprenticeships take 1 to 4 years to complete depending on their level.

Levels of apprenticeship

An apprenticeship has an equivalent education level and can be:

Intermediate – equivalent to 5 GCSE passes

Advanced – equivalent to 2 A level passes

Higher – can lead to NVQ Level 4 and above, or a foundation degree


Who can apply

You can apply for an apprenticeship while you’re still at school. To start one, you’ll need to be:

16 or over

Living in England

Not in full-time education

Apprenticeships provide you with a unique opportunity to obtain a recognised qualification whilst employed by a company or business.  Speak to your tutor or Mr Green in school for further information.

Writing your CV

Before you apply for an apprenticeship, you should spend some time considering your own skills, qualities and experience.  You should then carefully produce yourself a CV which includes a personal statement about yourself.

A user CV Building tool can be found on the National Careers Service Website.
