An apprenticeship is a genuine job, with training, meaning you can earn while you learn and gain the necessary skills and professional competencies in your chosen career. You’ll be employed to do a real job while studying for a formal qualification, usually for one day a week either at a college or a training centre. By the end of your apprenticeship you will hopefully have gained the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in your chosen career.see this page for up-to-date figures), but many employers pay more than this. This is dependent on the sector, region and apprenticeship level e.g. some higher apprenticeships pay up to £500 per week.
