How Apprenticeships work
Apprenticeships combine practical training in a job with study.
As an apprentice you’ll:
- Be an employee earning a wage and getting holiday pay
- Work alongside experienced staff
- Gain job specific skills
- Get time for training and study related to your role (at least 20% of your normal working hours)
Apprenticeships take from 1 to 5 years to complete depending on their level.
Apprenticeships have equivalent educational levels:
|Level||Equivalent Education Level|
|Higher||4, 5, 6 and 7||Foundation Degree and above|
|Degree||6 and 7||Bachelor's or Master's Degree|
Some apprenticeship qualifications may also give you an additional qualification, such as a diploma.
