Leaving College/School and/or progressing at work:

For many, the later years at school can be frustrating when all you want to do is get out into the world, start working and earn a living. Likewise, if already working, you may be looking to try something new altogether or to improve your skills and knowledge to help you progress up the career ladder. You may also want to improve your prospects of finding a job in your chosen industry, which guarantees top quality training, but lets you develop skills and gain qualifications on the job. 

Apprenticeships offer a mixture of on and off the job training and education that provides you with the skills you need for your chosen career that will also lead to nationally-recognised qualifications. As an apprentice you will learn on the job, undertake real jobs for employers – and get paid while you learn. 

There are more than 250 different Apprenticeships available in approximately 80 sectors of industry and commerce, ranging from Engineering to Business Administration to Construction. 

The possibilities are endless so whatever your chosen career you should be able to find an Apprenticeship that suits you. 

With university tuition fees in the region of £9,000 a year, some young people are looking for alternative pathways into degrees when they have completed A-Levels. 

Both the Government and UCAS recommend that young people consider the Apprenticeship pathway after A-Levels as a cost effective way into employment and Higher Education.
