Acing a career with an apprenticeship

Apprenticeships provide a way of combining learning with on-the-job training, which helps build solid, professional skills transferable from one organisation to another. Apprenticeships are available after GCSE and are a great alternative to full-time study for those students that prefer practical experience over classroom learning. Similarly, apprenticeships can be a great choice after sixth form or college. 

If your teen isn’t comfortable with committing to several years of further study, they can take one- or two-year options and, if they change their mind later on and decide they wish to extend the apprenticeship to gain higher level qualifications, this is often possible. Find out why apprenticeships could be the best career pathway for your child.
