Empowering your students

Learn how an apprenticeship can help your students to kickstart their careers.

Myth 1

Apprentices have to be a certain age.


Anyone can be an apprentice, as long as they are over 16 years of age.

Myth 2

Apprenticeships are only available in manual industries.


Apprenticeships are available in a huge number of industries. Our apprenticeships cover 30 different sectors, from Pharmacy, Dental Nursing and Health and Social Care to Digital, Management, and many more.

Myth 3

Apprentices never earn very much.


When an apprentice first starts, they’ll be on the apprentice minimum wage but many employers  pay more than this. In the long term, an apprenticeship could lead to a higher than average paid job, with some people earning between £77,000 and £117,000 more over their lifetime than similar learners who have a Level 2 qualification.
