Apprenticeships combine practical training in a job with study.
As an apprentice you’ll:
- work alongside experienced staff
- gain job-specific skills
- earn a wage and get holiday pay
- get time for study related to your role (usually one day a week)
Apprenticeships take 1 to 5 years to complete depending on their level.
Apprenticeships have equivalent educational levels.
Intermediate level 2 is equivalent to GCSE
Advanced level 3 is equivalent to A level
Higher level 4, 5, 6 and 7 is equivalent to Foundation degree and above
Degree level 6 and 7 is equivalent to Bachelor’s or Master’s degree
Some apprenticeships may also give you an additional qualification, such as a diploma.
You can apply for an apprenticeship while you’re still at school. To start one, you’ll need to be:
- 16 or over by the end of the summer holidays
- living in England
- not in full-time education
