An apprenticeship is a real job that provides hands-on experience and training. You’ll earn as you learn and gain a qualification whilst progressing within your chosen career.

Anyone living in England, over 16 years old and not in full-time education can apply. The current National Minimum Wage for an apprentice is £5.28 per hour if you are under 19 old or aged 19 or over but in the first year of your apprenticeship. After this time the National Minimum Wage relevant to your age applies.
