Plan A not working?
Is your plan A (levels) not working? Go for our plan A…
Apprenticeships are an alternative route to your dream career. They combine practical, on the job training, with study. This means that you get to learn and earn at the same time! You won’t have to pay for the training either (the government and employers do this) meaning that you wont have to pay tuition fees.
Until you are 18, you legally have to do one of the following:
- stay in full-time education, for example at a college
- start an Apprenticeship or Traineeship
- spend 20 hours or more a week working or volunteering, while in part-time education or training
An apprenticeship gives you the freedom of working and earning whilst you study for 20% off the job training. This means that your employer will let you out of work for 20% of the time whilst you study your apprenticeship modules. You’ll also get an apprenticeship’s wage throughout the time on the job and time spent studying.
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 (typically one day a week)
