'What Apprenticeship?' Handbook

Apprenticeships are perfect for those who want a more practical route into their career. This usually happens by working for an employer while studying part time (one or two days a week) and allows students to gain valuable work experience that they don't get with studying in a classroom. On top of this, apprentices are paid a wage and are treated like a regular member of staff.

There are now over 200 different Apprenticeships in a variety of different industries, such as hospitality, nursing, chemical engineering and even things you might not have thought of, like nuclear working or playwork.
