The facts about apprenticeships?

There are three levels of apprenticeship depending on skills and qualifications: intermediate, advanced and higher/degree.

Apprenticeships are available in 1500 job roles covering more than 170 industries, from advertising to youth work and environmental engineering and nuclear decommissioning. There are also higher and degree apprenticeships available, including foundation degrees, HNDs and full honours degrees, representing more than 100 different job roles. More and more specialised and highly skilled apprenticeships are being offered each year, ranging from legal services to banking and engineering, giving individuals the chance to continue their professional development and fully realise their potential.

The government is committed to rolling out many more degree apprenticeships, allowing young people to combine a world class degree with a world class apprenticeship. Degree apprenticeships are already available in Automotive, Digital Industries and Banking occupations. A further 11 have been approved for development, such as chartered surveyor, construction site manager and aerospace engineer. They are available in occupations as diverse as Solicitor, Software Developer, accountant and Dental Technician.

To start an apprenticeship, you’ll need to be 16 or over, living in England and not be in full time education. There is a huge variety of apprenticeships available across England offered by successful large and small businesses, including ‘blue chip’ British and international companies such as Google, ASOS, ITV, Airbus and IBM, so young people can find the apprenticeship that’s right for them. Over 240,000 employer workplaces employed an apprentice in 2013/14, covering an extensive range of skills levels and occupations.
