What’s an apprenticeship?
An apprenticeship is a genuine job and under all circumstances an apprentice will be employed from day one.
Apprenticeships combine practical training in a job with study.
An apprentice will:
work alongside experienced staff
gain job-specific skills
earn a wage and get holiday pay
be given time for study related to their role (the equivalent of one day a week)
