5 reasons to consider becoming an apprentice

Back to news

Apprenticeships have been at the forefront of education going back into the 1500s and have remained popular in many professions and sectors to this very day. It was only in 1993 however that the “Modern Apprenticeship” was announced, bringing in the fair wage and the introduction of qualifications, seeing a rise in uptake to almost a quarter of a million.

The development of apprenticeships and their range of standards available have come on a great deal since their conception, expanding the quality of training delivery to many more industries.

5 reasons you should consider becoming an apprentice

  1. Get into a great company and kick-start your career 

    An apprenticeship provides you with the hands-on experience, a salary, and the opportunity to gain relevant qualifications while you work. There are many different kinds of apprenticeships to choose from across a variety of sectors, with many well regarding and committed employers willing to provide apprenticeship opportunities throughout the country.

  2. Equip yourself with the necessary skills and experience to succeed 

    One of the key benefits of doing an apprenticeship is gaining real-world skills and experience that will put you head in your chosen field, alongside the technical knowledge you’ll learn off-the-job. Apprentices finish their training with experience that others don’t have, making them more attractive to future employers.

  3. Learn from real industry experts 

    Apprenticeship training programmes are specifically tailored to ensure you develop the skills that employers want and are delivered by tutors who have a wealth of experience from the sector you want to enter. You’ll benefit from their years of experience and gain the confidence and competence to stand out from the crowd.

  4. Learn in a style and at a pace that suits you 

    Unlike more traditional education settings, apprenticeships provide a unique blend of learning styles which can be adapted to the needs of each learner. From the hands-on, practical style of learning that you will find on-the-job itself, to working with tutors and peers online or in-person to expand your knowledge, you will benefit from a high-quality and effective training programme.

  5. Earn while you learn 

    All apprenticeships are real jobs, with real employers, allowing a learner to benefit from all the usual perks of employment while earning a salary. Apprentices should work for at least 30 hours per week, but usually more,  with programmes usually lasting for anywhere between 1 and 3 years, depending on the level and sector involved.
