STEP 5 - APPRENTICESHIP

Once your work trial has been successfully completed, you’ll be ready to take the final step of your journey, to take up an apprenticeship.

As with every step, we’ll be with you all the way and we’ll use our network of partner companies and organisations to ensure we find the right apprenticeship for you.

GET AHEAD IN YOUR CAREER 

Your apprenticeship will allow you to get ahead in your career, putting you in a position where you have had valuable work experience and skills. Apprenticeships get you well placed for other full-time positions that become available in the organisation you work for and for other businesses. 8 out of 10 learners progress into work.

Did you know? You can even do degree-level apprenticeships. That means you can still earn a wage and not worry about the debt!

I am really enjoying my new job role and I hope my experiences will inspire other learners and people that they can still achieve career success even in their twenties. "
