No. While you are an apprentice, your employer pays you a salary and supports you whilst you undertake your training.

Apprenticeships typically take between one and four years to complete, depending on the type of apprenticeship and the level. There is no set time to complete an apprenticeship as the length of time taken will depend on the qualification taken, the ability of the individual apprentice and the employer’s requirements.

Your employer and training provider (the College) will make sure you have support. Their job is to ensure that your training fits your personal requirements, offers the skills needed for the job and satisfies national standards. They will also be there to help and support you through any challenges or problems.

  • You must have lived in the UK for the past 3 years
  • Be legally allowed to work in the UK
  • Be 16 or older
  • Undertake an assessment/sills test to ascertain your suitability for the course
  • You can apply to be an apprentice at any age over the age of 16 years old
  • You must live in England
  • You must not be in full-time education

If you are working in any of the areas we have listed above please get in touch with us and let us know the name of your employer. We can speak to them directly about supporting you to train as an apprentice.
