Frequently Asked Questions About Apprenticeships

Apprenticeships give you the professional skills and knowledge you need for your chosen career. They’re a mixture of  on-the-job training and classroom learning that mean you can  earn while you learn.

Usually  between 12 and 18 months, however some can last over 24 months.

It’s quick and easy. 

And that’s all there is to it. You’ve just applied for an apprenticeship! 

The current minimum wage for an apprentice is £4.15, however, a lot of employers pay a higher hourly wage and this can vary between sectors and employers. Every vacancy we post clearly states how much you’ll earn so you’re fully aware before you apply for a role.

To become an apprentice you need to be 16 or over.  However, it’s always best to start  looking for  vacancies five to six months before you want to get a job. This means you’ll be ready and know what to do  when it comes to applying.  There’s no upper age limit to becoming an apprentice.

It’s not necessary but some employers may ask for it. Make sure you check the vacancy information first to see if  any specific experience or grades are needed.

Apprenticeships are a great stepping stone  to a long-term career. More than 90% of apprentices stay in employment after their course ends, which shows how beneficial they can be.

You’ll be assigned an experienced Recruitment Officer who’ll keep you up to date with your vacancy and will support you through the process. 

If you’re looking for industry specific information, we'll link you with a colleague from the vocational team who will be able to answer any questions or queries.
