Become an Apprentice

Apprenticeships combine practical training in a job with study.

As an apprentice you’ll:

  • Work alongside experienced staff
  • Gain job-specific skills
  • Earn a wage and get holiday pay
  • Get time for study related to your role (usually one day a week)

Apprenticeships take 1 to 5 years to complete depending on their level.

Employ an Apprentice

Apprentices are aged 16 or over and combine working with studying to gain skills and knowledge in a specific job.

Apprentices can be new or current employees.

You can get government funding to cover some of the cost of training and assessing an apprentice if you’re in England.

You must pay the apprentice at least the minimum wage.
Your apprentice must:

  • work with experienced staff
  • learn job-specific skills
  • study during their working week (for example, at a college or training organisation)
