Apprenticeships provide experiential, practical and monetary benefits.
If you are unsure about the apprenticeship route, read on below to discover the advantages it can provide.
Advantages of Apprenticeships
Learning is highly practical
For those who prefer practical work, an apprenticeship is the perfect fit.
80% of time is spent at the workplace gaining truly transferable skills.
The remaining 20% of time is spent on off-the-job training, gaining knowledge that can immediately be implemented at work.
Apprentices are Employees
An apprenticeship is a real job, and an apprentice is a genuine member of staff.
Apprentices get all the working benefits of a full-time employee, including a salary, paid holidays, bank holidays and statutory sick pay.
Apprentices get ahead of the curve
For those with a strong interest in a particular industry an apprenticeship is a great way to get ahead of the curve.
Apprentices gain all important working experience within a field of their choice, providing them with a competitive advantage when applying for full time employment
Apprenticeships lead to full-time jobs
This is because apprentices gain skills and knowledge highly relevant to their job role. As a result, they become a highly valued member of staff that employers wish to keep long-term.
Alongside the working perks of being an employee, apprentices get the financial advantages of being a student.
Nationally recognised qualifications
Upon completion of an apprenticeship, apprentices earn a nationally recognised qualification.
Depending on the apprenticeship level, this can be equivalent to a degree.
