About the network

What do you need to know about apprenticeships?

Young people can ‘get in and go far’ with an apprenticeship at some of Britain’s biggest and brightest companies. They can gain the skills and knowledge they need to succeed up to degree level, while working and earning.

The Government’s ambition is for it to become the norm for young people to achieve their career goals by going into an apprenticeship or to undertake a degree or – in the case of some, higher and degree apprenticeships – doing both. Both can be equally prestigious routes to a great career and secure finances in the years ahead.

Apprenticeships have increased at a record rate. More than 850,000 people were earning and learning on an apprenticeship in the 2013/14 academic year. Higher apprenticeships are relatively new (introduced in 2009/10) but are the fastest growing part of the apprenticeship programme in England.
