Modern Apprenticeships

Modern Apprenticeships provide employees with hands-on experience of learning from their employer and the chance to work towards a nationally recognised qualification.

There are lots of benefits for employers and lots of reasons you should do an Apprenticeship yourself.

Trainees, employers and training providers work together so the Modern Apprentice can develop their skills and knowledge through a package of learning at work and off-the-job learning at college.

They are open to anyone aged 16 or over, but funding for college training is currently focussed on those aged 16-19.

Modern Apprenticeships normally take between 1–3 years to complete.
