Apprenticeships are work based training programmes that are a mixture of employment and college or private provider training.
Apprenticeships can offer young people a positive first step on to the career ladder and the chance to do a job while gaining nationally recognised training and qualifications and essential workplace experience.
Anyone living in England, over 16 and not in full time education can apply.
An apprenticeship can take between one and four years to complete depending on the level of apprenticeship, the apprentices’ ability and the industry sector.
