Why Choose an Apprenticeship?
An apprenticeship is a great way of learning a trade and earning money at the same time.
The nationally recognised qualifications you study for are very practical and work related – not like exams at school. And, don’t forget, if you decide later on that you want to go back into full-time education, Universities these days aren’t just looking for “A” and “AS” levels – vocational qualifications like NVQ’s, BTech’s and HNC’s are perfectly acceptable for many courses as well.
Don't just take our word for it!
