What is an Apprenticeship? Apprenticeships are further education and many school leavers chose to study an Apprenticeship rather than going to 6th Form or studying at a college. An Apprenticeship is a real job with training, which allows you to earn while you learn and gain a qualification at the same time. You’ll also develop a range of transferable skills which are highly valued by employers, such as communication, teamwork and problem solving. NLTG Apprenticeships are full time, permanent jobs with a position for you when you finish your Apprenticeship.
