If you have finished your A Levels you might be considering an apprenticeship. An apprenticeship can be a good route if you want to get training for a specific job sector and be earning at the same time. There are all sorts of opportunities for fantastic apprenticeships developing all the time.

There are also now Degree Apprenticeships. These have been designed by employers and universities and apprentices will split their time between university study and the workplace and will be employed throughout – gaining a full bachelors or masters degree from a top university while earning a wage and getting real on-the-job experience in their chosen profession.
Higher Apprentices are already able to study to degree level as part of their apprenticeship but Degree Apprenticeships will go further. They will involve a degree as an integral part of the Apprenticeship, co-designed by employers to make sure it is relevant for the skills that industry is looking for.
