Apprenticeship Overview

Apprenticeships are an excellent way of gaining qualifications and workplace experience. As an employee, you can earn as you learn and you gain practical skills from the workplace.

Apprentices earn a wage and work alongside experienced staff to gain job-specific skills. Off the job, away from the immediate pressures of their job, apprentices receive training to work towards nationally recognised qualifications.

The minimum salary is £3.70 per hour, however, many apprentices earn significantly more.

"I have enjoyed my meetings with Danielle, they have been very good and i have learnt a lot in the last few months."

Receptionist, DCLT, Doncaster

"Excellent support from my assessor throughout"

Employer: Broadbents, Huddersfield

"We are delighted to say that your training has proven to be different. Your trainers talked to me before they talked to my staff to establish the needs of the company. Your trainers took note of what we needed and then went further by ensuring that my staff had the prerequisite knowledge, ability and desire to achieve what was going to be asked of them. The training was focused on the needs of this company; consequently to complete the training my staff had to become more involved in what we do and more importantly, why we do what we do. As a result of this involvement some of our systems have now changed for the better. In addition, the staff have developed a greater depth of knowledge about our systems, making implementation easier. "
