    Course FAQs

    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?

    How long do apprenticeships last?

    This will depend on the apprenticeship you want to complete. All of our apprenticeship course pages make it clear what the duration of the programme is, so please check these carefully.
