Why should I do one?

There are lots of great reasons to do an apprenticeship, but here are the big ones:

Money – You’ll be working for an employer and earning a salary while you learn. Salaries vary, but apprentices earn an average of £170 per week.

Other perks – You’ll get paid holidays too, plus the same benefits as other employees – pension contributions, subsidised canteen, leisure facilities, etc.

Qualifications – You’ll gain nationally recognised qualifications that will be valid for any employer. That means you can change jobs and take your skills and qualifications with you.

Training – With an apprenticeship under your belt, employers will know that you’ve got the skills and training needed to do the job and they’ll be more likely to hire you.
