First things first… What is an Apprenticeship?
An apprenticeship involves learning at a college or provider whilst gaining onsite experience. You gain qualifications alongside your apprenticeship such as BTECs, NVQs or even foundation degrees depending on your entry level. Attitudes towards apprenticeships have improved over the last 10 years, however, some people still don’t appreciate the opportunities that they can provide to young people. Taking an apprenticeship is a great way to get into a career and many companies, Network Rail, for example, encourage apprenticeships.
