You’ll be one step ahead in your career, because you’ll already know the job and have experience!
Apprenticeships are highly recognised by employers, because you’ll already have the experience that they need. Not only that, but you'll gain a nationally recognised qualification, so you can progress to other levels as you qualify. A higher apprenticeship is the equivalent of a Foundation Degree for example.
Learn job specific skills
You’ll be learning the job alongside professionals, which will help you to learn your skills from qualified, experienced workers.
Earn a salary
The average wage for an apprentice is around £170 - £210 per week. Apprenticeship pay depends on the National Minimum Wage. From April 2017 this is £3.50 per hour for under 18s and in the first year of an apprenticeship. This rises as you reach 18 and you progress into the second year and so on. For example a 22 year old apprentice in their 2nd year would be paid a minimum of £7.05 per hour (April 2017). The National Minimum Wage changes frequently, so check out the Government website
for current information.
We offer three types of apprenticeship:

- Advanced Level 3 - this is equivalent to two A Levels
- Higher Level 4 & 5 - this is equivalent to an HND or Foundation Degree
