If you want to start earning and get qualified, an apprenticeship can offer you the best of both worlds. Apprenticeships offer a fantastic way to earn while you learn. You'll get a job with a salary while studying for a qualification and receive practical, on-the-job work experience at the same time.
Apprenticeships are not only for young people trying to enter the working world but are also a great opportunity for established professionals to upskill themselves using the apprenticeship funding. This is an opportunity which is beneficial to both the learner and employer.

Bolanle Lawal - Accountancy Apprentice
"The Apprenticeship has been very good in relating what I have been learning at the College to what I am doing at work every day. The tutors cover every aspect of the subject and have always been very helpful and supportive. I am now studying for my Level 4.”
Elwinus Leon - Construction Apprentice
“I was studying my A-Levels and had applied to university when I heard about Apprenticeships. After doing some research I found it a fantastic option because you can work, get paid and get work experience, all whilst getting an education. Work experience these days is so crucial when looking for a job.”
Georgia Hughes - Clinical Care Apprentice
“Halfway through my A-levels I decided to do an Apprenticeship. I felt that I learnt better doing something practical rather than from a book. I am doing my apprenticeship at North Middlesex Hospital and I’m really enjoying it. I’ve been able to get hands on experience and understand hospital protocols and the way the different roles work with each other. Doing an Apprenticeship was the best decision I ever made. I’d recommend it to anyone.”
