Apprenticeships are a great way to get on the career ladder, so you can start earning while you train and gain your independence quicker.
The job market, as you will have heard or experienced, is tough these days. More people are competing for fewer job vacancies, making it more important than ever to make yourself stand out from the crowd. So what are employers looking for? Qualifications, definitely, but when you’re competing against other well-qualified candidates you’ll want to give yourself the edge, and a Higher Apprenticeship could help.
The Higher Apprenticeship benefits students by equipping them with great qualifications. Higher Apprentices study for work-based learning qualifications like a Level 4 NVQ. In some instances you can work towards an academic qualification like a Foundation Degree. Some of our most established and respected companies offer these types of courses.
Apprenticeships should not be considered an easy option, there is competition to gain one. You will need the following:
There are no tuition fees or student loans – Apprenticeships are paid for from the company levy or an employer contribution if the company does not pay the government levy.
