Is there an Age Limit to Apprenticeships

To put it simply, no. There is no age limit to apprenticeships. If you are above the age of 16, you can apply for an apprenticeship. It’s a common misconception that you have to be between the ages of 16 and 25 to be an apprentice. However, this is not the case.

Before introducing the apprenticeship levy in April 2017, the maximum age for an apprentice in the United Kingdom was 24. Since its introduction, this age limit was lifted and now there is no age limit to apprenticeships

Apprenticeships can be now accessed to a larger community of people looking to change occupations or start from scratch now that the target age has been lifted.
