An apprenticeship is a paid job which offers hands-on work experience alongside off-the-job training. Apprenticeships are for anyone above the age of 16 who isn’t in full-time education. There isn’t an age limit but they’re normally aimed at 16-24 year olds. Starting an apprenticeship is an alternative pathway to going into the sixth form or college at 16, or going onto university at 18.

The following sites will give you more information about apprenticeships at both 16 and 18. If you need more information, please contact –
