Thinking about Apprenticeships?

As tuition fees rise, and more young people find themselves looking for alternatives to university, many are turning to apprenticeships to get their careers off the ground. But are they a viable alternative?

The Myth: Apprenticeships are for students that didn’t get the grades for university.

The Reality: Apprenticeships are valuable, hands-on qualifications that allow young people to earn while they learn in a whole range of industries. Higher Apprenticeships even carry the same weight as a Foundation degree which can be converted into a full Honours degree.

 

The Options

There are three tiers of apprenticeship:

· Intermediate – equivalent to 5 GCSE passes

· Advanced – equivalent to 2 A level passes

· Higher – lead to NVQ Level 4 and above and increasingly to a full degree paid for by the employer

All apprenticeships are required to be at least 12 months long.

 

The National Apprenticeship Service advertises upcoming vacancies from the country’s biggest and best apprenticeship employers. It was launched by Anne Milton, Skills Minister, at the House of Commons on 26th June 2018 and is shown below :
