Apprenticeships provide an exciting pathways for young people on their journey to meaningful careers.

Having a spotlight on opportunities, employers and training providers means that more and more career options open up for young people to gain valuable work experience whilst studying for the qualifications to be a young professional.

Apprenticeships can help individuals to develop the skills and knowledge required for a rewarding career; and they can help businesses to develop a talented workforce equipped with future-ready skills.

Apprenticeships also give a candidate the chance to get a sense of the job and see if it fits them.
