What are apprenticeships?
Apprenticeships are work-based training programmes designed around employer needs that combine a qualification and employment. This means that you’ll have the opportunity to develop your skills to match requirements through a mixture of on and off the job learning. Many employers now prioritise practical work experience when recruiting staff. By studying an apprenticeship, you get the best of both worlds, you can achieve a recognised qualification while gaining that all-important practical experience. Even better, you’ll earn a wage while working and studying, what’s not to like?
What are the minimum hours I can work on an apprenticeship?
Apprenticeships are usually a minimum of 30 hours per week to qualify for funding. There are some cases where this can be lower, however, lowering hours would need to be discussed and agreed with the college prior to enrolment.
