Apprenticeships combine practical training in a job with study.
As an apprentice you will:
- work alongside knowledgeable 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.
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
