Apprenticeships are a great way to learn a trade – is an apprenticeship for you?

With the cost of University increasing year on year, more and more young people are choosing an apprenticeship rather than going to University.

Here’s 5 good reasons why they may be right for you:

  • The chance to shine. When you start an apprenticeship, you will learn your trade from a master. You will work with someone who’s an expert and who will help you learn how to be an expert too.

  • A skill you can use. Jobs that start with an apprenticeship are highly skilled, and they are in high demand. After all, not everyone can be an engineer! It takes specialised training, which you’ll gain through your apprenticeship. Once you’ve completed the apprenticeship, you’ll have credentials that will be valued anywhere you go.

  • Earn while you learn. People don’t usually get paid to learn something new! But as an apprentice, you’ll learn a new skill and get paid while you learn.

  • Great opportunities. 83% of apprentices have said that their career prospects have improved due to completing their apprenticeship.

  • A secure future. With an apprenticeship, you’ll have the chance to gain the skills and technical know-how to become one of the best in your field. Achieving such a high level of skill will lead to a higher salary and greater job opportunities.
