An apprenticeship is a job with the benefit of a structured training programme to support people new to the role. Apprenticeships are designed to be taken over a minimum period of 12 months, with some degree apprenticeships designed to be taken over a period of 36 months.
Apprenticeships aren’t about giving people qualifications (although industry qualifications can be included in the training programme) – they are about supporting people to become capable professionals, building personal development and adding real value to businesses.
Employers come together to create ‘apprenticeship standards’, agreeing on a set of knowledge, skills and behavioural standards a person needs to have to be competent in a specific role.
Bespoke apprenticeship training programmes are then designed in collaboration with each individual employer and a dedicated training provider to support an apprentice in completing the programme.
