An Apprenticeship is a real job with training which would allow your daughter or son to earn while they learn, gaining a nationally recognised qualification at the same time. Apprenticeships take between one and four years to complete and cover 1,500 job roles in a wide range of industries.
Apprenticeships are available to anyone over the age of 16, living in England. It is an alternative option to staying on at 6th form or going to college. There are different entry requirements depending on the sector or job. However, the employers who mainly work with N-Gaged Training tend to want young people who just have a thirst for the industry!
