Apprenticeship/Employment Updates

Apprenticeships

Apprenticeships are an alternative pathway for some students after Sixth Form. As an apprentice you earn a wage and work alongside experienced staff to gain job-specific skills. Apprentices receive training to gain nationally recognised qualifications. The benefits of apprenticeships include:

  • Earning a salary
  • Getting paid holidays
  • Receiving training
  • Gaining industry standard qualifications
  • Learning job specific skills

Apprenticeships are not for everyone, but if you have a clear idea of an industry or sector you want to work in they are an important alternative to university.
