Why Become An Apprentice? 

There are loads of benefits to doing an Apprenticeship. Apprentices do real jobs for real employers, learning real skills. 

So you can earn while you learn, and learn in a way that is best suited to you - through hands-on vocational experience that meets the government apprenticeship strategy for vocational learning.

Key benefits of being an apprentice include:

  1. Earning a salary
  2. Getting paid holidays
  3. Receiving training
  4. Gaining qualifications
  5. Learning job-specific skills

The minimum wage for apprentices is set by the government. Plus research shows that apprentices earn, on average, over £117,000 more throughout their lifetime than other employees.

More information on the apprenticeship wage can be found on the Gov.uk website.
