Post 18 - Apprenticeships
Apprenticeships enable you to undertake employment, learning through real-life situations whilst continuing with your studies within class-based learning. You'll be employed and paid to do a real job and study for a formal qualification such as an HNC/HND or degree - usually for one day a week either at a college or university or via distance learning. You will be treated like all the other employees, with a contract of employment, holiday entitlement and any company benefits on offer.
By the end of your apprenticeship, you'll hopefully have gained the skills and knowledge needed to either succeed in your chosen career or progress onto the next apprenticeship level.
Students who wish to undertake an apprenticeship at the end of Year 13, would primarily be suited to Advanced (level 3) or higher/degree opportunities (levels 4-6).
