Is an Apprenticeship the right option for you?
Apprenticeships are a way to become trained and qualified in a trade or particular type of job. An apprenticeship involves learning a skilled trade under a qualified tradesperson. This can be a small or large employer. There are hundreds of different trades available such as hairdressers, mechanics, electrician, chef, plumber, cabinet maker etc. An apprenticeship can be undertaken part-time, however, they are usually full-time over 3-4 years.
Benefits of doing an Apprenticeship:
- Combines training and employment and can lead to a nationally recognised qualification
- A great way to get a head start on a chosen career
- A pathway from school to paid employment
- Paid work and structured training that can be ‘on-the-job’, ‘off-the-job’ or a combination of both
