If you are employed, or looking for employment and want to gain the
skills and qualifications that will enable you to progress in your
chosen vocation then an Apprenticeship programme could be for you.
With an Apprenticeship you can have the best of both worlds - earning
while you learn in the real workplace, gaining practical experience and a
nationally recognised qualification.
Apprenticeships are designed for 16-24 year olds and are available free
if you are 16, 17 or 18 when you start. For those aged 19+ employers are
asked to contribute to costs.

Apprenticeships are great. You're gaining real work experience not just a qualification. That's really important right now, when so many young people are out of work.
