An apprenticeship is essentially a structured training and work arrangement of multiple years – eg up to 4 years. It is delivered by organisations, such as ourselves, who can provide both practical experience, educational development in a way that is nationally recognised and structured to help you achieve the skills, knowledge and experience necessary for your chosen career. As an apprentice, you are employed by us, with a proper employment contract and associated terms and conditions such as annual leave etc.
Also, as an alternative, we have a traineeship which is more a ‘try before you commit’ arrangement where a range of experiences are provided over a year. The process of which helps you narrow down your preferred career direction – and from this, you can then move forwards into the right apprenticeship or even job for you. It is a process that is not one you do in isolation, but one that is fully supported by our dedicated team.
