Is an apprenticeship the right choice?


Apprenticeships provide focused and applied training for those who already have a strong interest in a job or industry. 

Not everyone is suited to academic style learning and apprenticeships provide a practical approach to obtaining qualifications. 

Apprenticeships provide paid employment. In addition, your child will leave debt free. 

Gaining work experience and on the job training may provide your child with a competitive advantage when applying for full time employment. 

Apprenticeships develop key transferable skills which are considered lacking in the labour market. 

Apprenticeships may provide future employment within the company and working within an organisation may reveal job roles they did not know existed. 

Some students flourish with the responsibility and structure of an apprenticeship. 

Degree apprenticeships offer the chance to gain a BA or BSc without incurring the debts associated with university study.
