What is an Apprenticeship? Your son/daughter/ward does not have to stay on at school or college after the age of 16; they may choose to continue their education by starting an Apprenticeship. Apprenticeships are ideal for those who are keen to join the world of work. They provide access to jobs that demand a high level of skill, judgement and creativity. Alongside the achievement of a nationally recognised qualification, your son/daughter/ward will develop the skills and knowledge needed for their chosen career, all while earning a salary! For more information on our Apprenticeships, please take a look at our Apprenticeships page.
