Six things you didn’t know about an apprenticeship

Thinking about an apprenticeship? Take a look at these six reasons why it’s such a great option.

1)    You won’t have to pay fees
Worried about the long-term cost of uni? As an apprentice, you’ll graduate debt-free! Apprenticeship fees are paid by the government and employers.

2)    Higher and degree apprenticeships are assessed by employers
Apprentices study for a national vocational qualification (NVQ). You’ll get tested on practical, work-related tasks, so you get to see first-hand how you’re progressing.
As NVQs are assessed by employers, they really are the ideal way to get job ready. If you already know the right career for you, an apprenticeship could give you the skills and experience you need to get there.

3)    There are four different types of apprenticeship

·      Intermediate (Level 2) – roughly equivalent to five GCSEs.
·      Advanced (Level 3) – roughly equivalent to two A levels/Highers.
·      Higher/technical (levels 4 to 7) – equivalent to a Higher National Diploma (HND). With a higher apprenticeship, you have the opportunity to carry on to a foundation degree.
·      Degree/professional (levels 5 to 7) – equivalent to a bachelor’s degree. You’ll combine on-the-job learning with lectures, seminars, and independent study, and will graduate with a fully accredited degree. You can even progress to master’s level.

4)   Apprenticeships often have higher entry requirements than employment
Be realistic about which apprenticeship you apply for – some might have higher entry requirements than others. As the entry requirements are controlled by employers, they might sometimes be flexible. For example, if you don’t hold the required grades or qualifications, try persuading them with your transferrable skills. This is your opportunity to sell yourself, so think about what you have to offer.

5)   Apprenticeships are for all ages
Apprenticeships are for everyone. You don’t need to be a school leaver to take on an apprenticeship, but equally, you can start straight after your GCSEs, or after taking your A levels. If you are already in full-time work and want to change your career path, why not retrain with an apprenticeship?

6)   You will learn the same things on an apprenticeship as at uni
You might find that apprenticeship course content is actually very similar to a traditional university course. When combined with the valuable experience you’ll gain along the way, you’ll be in a great position to get that job you want.
If you think an apprenticeship might be for you, start exploring at your options now.
