How to Obtain an Apprenticeship

If you are 16 or older and want on-the-job training, an apprenticeship could be for you. Paid apprenticeships aren’t only for school graduates; there are many adult apprenticeships open as well. You might also become an apprentice after you’ve been working for a company for a while.

Apprenticeships include a wide variety of jobs that are highly valued and sought for by employers. The training would provide you with the credentials you need to begin your career – or it will help you advance your expertise if you are already employed. Many people are unaware that apprenticeships are often used to develop leadership and management skills.

Since apprentices train on the job, you’ll be gaining real-world knowledge, ensuring you’ll learn the expertise needed by that job role and earning compensation – such as holiday pay. You will still be expected to do off-the-job training. Construction, finance, health and social services, transportation, and manufacturing are among the industries where we provide apprenticeships.

You can do an apprenticeship if you are not a UK citizen as long as you have the right to work in the UK, and the apprenticeship falls under the terms of your visa.
