Kickstart your career with an Apprenticeship

With many families in the UK experiencing some form of financial strain, it is not always possible for young adults to continue their education at university. They may feel the need and the responsibility to enter into the workforce and contribute to their household expenses. With legal requirements now stating that education or training must continue until the age of 18, how do those who are duty-bound to find employment cope with such legalities?

 

Apprenticeships could offer the solution.

All apprenticeships are funded by contributions from the government and the employer, meaning there are no fees for the apprentice to pay. With the opportunity to fulfil education commitments while simultaneously earning a wage, apprentices earn money  and continue their studies at the same time. An incredible 90% [1] of apprentices stay on in their place of work after completing an apprenticeship, so the stress of finding employment once studies are complete is also drastically reduced.

An apprentice is treated just like a regular employee. A contract of employment and paid annual holiday leave are all part of the package. With hands-on experience in the real working world, you, and your employer, will have confidence in your abilities once you complete your training.

Apprenticeships are not just beneficial for the ‘now’, either. They also enhance career prospects for the future, with statistics revealing that 27% [2] of university graduates earned less than apprentices (2014).

 

Advance your career with a higher-level Apprenticeship

Contrary to popular belief, apprenticeships are not just for 16-18 year olds. There has been a noticeable jump in number of starters on higher level apprenticeships over the last few years, with 44% [3] of starters in 2018/19 being at Level 4 or above. Higher level apprenticeships are ideal for those already in the industry who wish to enhance their career and personal development.
