Benefits of Apprenticeships for young people
Who can do an Apprenticeship?

    Apprenticeships depending on the occupational
    sector, level and employer requirements

    in full-time education
  • An apprentice must be16 years and above and be at
    the statutory school leaving age
  • An apprentice must be committed to work and
    learning and aware of their responsibilities to
    themselves, their employer and training provider

Reality Check
  • Apprentices are employed full time (at least 30
    hours per week) and will have a contract of
    employment that covers at least the duration of
    the Apprenticeship.
  • Not all Apprenticeships automatically guarantee a
    sustained job with the employer
  • The training can take place at a training centre
    or college on day or block release basis or may
    be completed fully in the workplace this could
    involve travel
  • The Apprentice will earn a salary, the minimum
    wage is currently 2.68 per hour, although many
    employers will pay more than this, consideration
    needs to be given to cost of travel etc
