Why do an apprenticeship?
- Earn while you learn. An apprenticeship is a full time work-based learning programme that combines accredited learning with paid work. Apprentices spend 20% of their paid hours on off-the-job training and learning.
- Excellent value. We fund your apprenticeship training, which means you can avoid student loans.
- Degree equivalent. Apprenticeships qualifications range from level 2 (equivalent to GCSE and A levels) all the way up to level 7 (equivalent to Bachelor's or Master's degree levels).
- NUS Extra card. As an apprentice you can apply for the NUS card and get up to 50% off driving lessons, clothes, travel and lots more!
- Travel card. You can get an Apprentice Oyster photo card and save 30% off adult-rate Travelcards and Bus and Tram Pass season tickets.
- Paid holidays. You’ll get paid holidays plus bank holidays.
