2Apprenticeships and Traineeships

Apprenticeships and traineeships are a great way to combine training with work, enabling you to work while you complete training towards a nationally recognised qualification. They are available to anyone of working age.

To gain an apprenticeship or traineeship you would normally apply to take a job as an apprentice or trainee, and your employer would work with a training provider to ensure you are trained.
