Apprenticeships and traineeships
Apprenticeships and traineeships combine work-based training with an employer and formal training from a            training provider. They are established under training contracts between the employer and the apprentice or             trainee and are regulated by government. They're a great way to be paid for work, learn and earn a qualification.

An apprenticeship or traineeship will give the skills employers need while being paid to get a nationally recognised qualification.

  • one of the best ways to get job training and qualifications
  • highly regarded by business and industry
  • government regulated
