Kicking off your career with an apprenticeship is a great way to get a head start in the field you want to work in.

You’ll get first-hand knowledge of how the industry works, plus be able to see whether or not it’s really what you want to pursue as a career. There are plenty of other reasons why you should apply for one when you leave school or college, and it’s always a good idea to talk to a teacher or careers adviser about the best route into your dream job.

Also, your apprenticeship may have shown you other interests that you never knew you had, so think about going to University or getting another qualification. Or, take some time out to think about your next step, and look into taking a gap year -you can work abroad, volunteer or just travel.

An apprenticeship is essentially a set of qualifications called a ‘framework’. Most apprenticeship frameworks follow a standard format that is made up of knowledge qualifications, workplace competency and skills in English, maths and ICT. The length of an apprenticeship varies depending on your starting skill levels, the qualification being obtained and requirements of the sector. Generally, apprenticeships take between one and two years to complete.

Nearly 9 out of 10 apprentices were satisfied with their apprenticeship overall, and 97% of apprentices said their ability to do the job had improved.
