What is an apprenticeship?

An apprenticeship is a paid job where you learn and gain experience while working. 80% of your time will be in the workplace with around 20% in training at a college or training provider.

They can be done for hundreds of jobs, both on and off-site with degree apprenticeships helping you gain a university degree with none of the cost.

There are lots of places to search online for an apprenticeship. You can use the Government 'Find an Apprenticeship' service, and also search for apprenticeship roles using the links below.

There are many construction apprenticeships available.

How do I apply for an apprenticeship?

How much could I earn?

As an apprentice the cost of your training is covered by your employer - win, win.
