Apprenticeships and Qualifications

Learn more about apprenticeships and how the Apprenticeships and Qualifications team can help you

An apprenticeship is a way of studying towards a formal qualification while working. They aren’t just for school leavers either. Anyone aged over 16 can be an apprentice and there’s no upper age limit, so you can study in your current role. The cost of your apprenticeship training will be met by your employer’s Apprenticeship Levy fund.


Finding an apprenticeship

Known as ‘apprenticeship standards’, there are over 700 subjects to choose from ranging from the very specific, like Adult Care Worker, to more general, such as the Operations / Departmental Manager right up to Masters Degree’s.
