Apprenticeships combine practical training in a job with study.
As an apprentice, you would:
- work alongside experienced staff
- gain job-specific skills
- earn a wage and get holiday pay
- get time for study related to your role (usually one day a week)
Apprenticeships take 1 to 5 years to complete depending on their level.
Search for an apprenticeship and apply using the apprenticeships website.
For further support in finding a suitable apprenticeship residents of Staffordshire can contact Ladder for Staffordshire.
