Apprenticeships are a great study route for anyone who would like to gain practical hands-on experience while completing a nationally recognised qualification. In most cases the qualification is funded by the Government and your employer, which means you won't be stuck with a costly student loan when you've completed your studies.

Benefits of apprenticeships

Getting paid:  Apprenticeships give you the opportunity to work, get paid and gain the qualifications recognised for your chosen career. 

On the job learning: Working whilst learning provides an excellent insight into your chosen job and allows you to put your training into action to benefit you and your employer. You will obtain qualifications respected by employers around the world. As all Apprenticeships are designed in conjunction with employers, you can be confident that the skills you will learn will be what your employer needs.

Job sustainability: The majority of apprentices (85%) will stay in employment with two- thirds (64%) staying with the same employer*

Stand out: Employers think that qualified apprentices are 15% more employable than those with other qualifications

Career growth: Not everyone wants to get promoted, but if you have career aspirations your Apprenticeship will place you in good stead. A third (32%) of all former apprentices have received a promotion within 12 months of finishing, and of those in work, 75% reported taking on more responsibilities.

NUS Apprentice Extra Card: Apprentices can apply for an NUS extra card which can be used at hundreds of high street and online brands. This is the only discount card available for apprentices, and will help your hard earned cash to stretch a little further. Click here for more info.
