An A-Z of apprenticeships! #part2

jessica-johnsonThis week we’re finishing our A-Z of apprenticeships which includes everything you need to know. If you missed the first part of our two-parter you’ll find it here.

No debts…
Did we mention that apprenticeships are funded by the employer – AND you get paid too? Meaning no debts for you. We did? We just can’t help but shout about it.

Opportunities
As an apprentice – you aren’t just the  “tea maker”. Apprentices will have real responsibilities and get plenty of opportunities to learn more about their chosen industry.

Payday!
Your new favourite day. Apprentices can potentially earn up to £300 per week meaning you’ll be able to afford those new trainers, driving lessons, night out, etc.

Qualifications
An apprenticeship isn’t just about learning skills in the workplace. You’ll also work towards industry-standard qualifications!

Responsibility
As an apprentice you’ll be working in a real role alongside real members of staff. You’ll need to be professional and responsible to get the job done and show employers you mean business.

Skills
Apprenticeships will boost your skills – from technical skills relevant to your apprenticeship, to communication and teamwork skills which transfer to any profession.

Technical certificate
One of the many qualifications you’ll work towards as part of your apprenticeship.

University?
Some apprenticeships are offered up to university-level which means you’ll be getting the same level of qualifications as your friends at uni (who will be paying for the privilege)!).

Vacancies…
Apprenticeship vacancies come along all the time – so you can start a potential apprenticeship all year round. Keep checking back on our website to see if any new ones have appeared in your area.

Work experience
Apprenticeships provide you with vital work experience, and in turn, employability skills which look great on your CV and UCAS applications should you choose to go into Higher Education following your apprenticeship.

Xciting!
Yes, ok – we cheated with this one, but apprenticeships are exciting and can get you on the path towards a new and diverse career.

Young people?
Many believe apprenticeships are “just for young people”. We’re here to dispel the myths. Apprenticeships are available to anyone over the age of 16, and living in the UK. So if you’re looking for a career change – an apprenticeship could be for you.

Zoo keeper
Apprenticeships come in all shapes and sizes – and there are over 200 apprenticeship frameworks available – so you could become anything from an admin assistant to a zoo keeper!
