An Apprenticeship is a job with training. Being an apprentice means that you are employed but you will develop skills and qualifications that are relevant to the job you are doing. 

There are three levels of Apprenticeship:

  • Intermediate Apprenticeship (Level 2)
  • Advanced Apprenticeship (Level 3)
  • Higher/Degree Apprenticeship (Level, 4, 5, 6. 7)

When you search for an Apprenticeship vacancy, it will specify the level you will be working at.  Alternatively, the level you work at may be determined by the level of qualifications you already hold.

If you're not quite ready for an apprenticeship, a traineeship will help you improve your maths, English, and work skills whilst gaining work experience. If you are doing a Traineeship, you will not be employed.
