An apprenticeship is a real job that provides hands-on experience and training. It’s an opportunity to ‘earn while you learn’ and gain a nationally recognised qualification whilst kick-starting your career! You’ll be given a salary and allocated 20% ‘off-the-job’ training time, and will have the support of your employer and your training provider throughout the whole process.
If you’re over 16, have lived in England for the last 3 years and are not in full time education you could be eligible to become an apprentice!
The following quotes are from Portsmouth apprentices on the benefits of taking part in an apprenticeship.
