National Apprenticeship Week 2020
As an apprentice you’ll:
- work alongside experienced staff
- gain job-specific skills
- earn a wage and get holiday pay
- get time for study related to your role (usually one day a week)
Apprenticeships take 1 to 5 years to complete depending on their level.

Apprenticeships have equivalent educational levels.
|Name||Level||Equivalent educational level|
|Higher||4,5,6 and 7||Foundation degree and above|

Some apprenticeships may also give you an additional qualification, such as a diploma.
