Learn new skills, gain experience and get paid! For anyone over 16 not in full-time education, this is an opportunity to get the right skills for your career.

An apprenticeship is a real job, with a contract of employment and holiday leave. It can take between one and 6 years to complete depending on the specific job you choose, what level it is and your previous experience.

Apprenticeships are funded by contributions from the Government and your employer. By the end of your apprenticeship, you will have the right skills, knowledge and practical experience needed for your chosen career.

To become an apprentice, you must be aged 16 or over and not in full-time education (although your are still eligible if you have a previous qualification such as a degree).

As an apprentice you will learn and train for a specific job – at least 20% of your working hours will be studying at a college, university or with a training provider. You will be expected to complete assessments during and at the end of your apprenticeship. In return, you will get paid and receive holiday leave.

For more information, you can contact us at the Youth Hub or you can contact any of the training providers that are listed below who will be able to offer more information and will also be able to  help you secure an apprenticeship:
