What is an apprenticeship? 

An apprenticeship is a job where apprentices learn, gain experience and get paid. They are an employee with a contract of employment and holiday leave. By the end of an apprenticeship, they will have the right skills and knowledge needed for their chosen career.

An apprenticeship, which must last for a minimum of 12 months, combines hands-on work with the opportunity to train and obtain qualifications. At least 20% of their time is set aside for learning. The rest of the time is spent applying their knowledge and skills in the actual workplace. 

At the end of it, apprentices gain official certification, which will be equivalent to traditional qualifications, with the ambition that the apprentice remains with the employer and continues to flourish within the organisation.
