Apprenticeships are nationally recognised training programmes that offer an excellent way of mastering practical skills in the workplace, while gaining a formal qualification.
They give new or existing employees the chance to train as they work and earn money, and are increasingly recognised as the gold standard for work-based training.
Apprenticeships are offered at different levels and are known by different names across the UK.
