Jobcentre Plus can help you find Apprenticeships or training

JobcentrePlus can help you find Apprenticeships or further training, not just full or part-time jobs in your local area! Here’s how it works.

What is an Apprenticeship?

An apprenticeship is a scheme where you learn on the job while earning a wage. Apprenticeships are available in a huge range of industries, from hairdressing to plumbing or business and marketing. Anyone over 16 can apply to be an apprentice, and schemes take 1 – 4 years depending on the level.

How does Jobcentre Plus help you find Apprenticeships?

Work Coaches can help you explore options

Apprenticeships are regulated by the DWP in the UK. This means that your local Job Centre will be able to help you if you’re interested in becoming an apprentice. They will be able to advise you, help you search for the right scheme for you, and even help you with your interview skills.

Search online at Jobcentre Plus

You can also search for apprenticeships through the Government’s online database.

Get further training while claiming benefits like Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA)

If you’re unemployed and claiming certain benefits including Jobseekers’ Allowance, you might also be eligible for free training or support with certain course costs.

Further training can boost your skills, make your CV more impressive, and ultimately make you more employable.

Your Job Centre Work Coach will be able to tell you what training courses you can access.
