An apprenticeship is a real job with training, which allows trainees to earn while they learn, as well as gaining a nationally recognised qualification. Apprenticeships take between one and five years to complete, and cover an enormous range of job roles, such as accountancy, engineering, public relations, and dentistry; to name a few.
There are many different levels of apprenticeship:
- Intermediate apprenticeship (Level 2): equivalent to 5 GCSE passes
- Advanced apprenticeship (Level 3): equivalent to 2 A Level passes
- Higher apprenticeship (Level 4 and above): equivalent to an NVQ, or Higher National Diploma
- Degree apprenticeship (Level 6 and above): equivalent to a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree
Each type of apprenticeship has different entry requirements, and vary in how long they take to complete. More information can be found here.
