Leeds Apprenticeship Hub
Taking on an apprenticeship can be life-changing. You can earn money, step into your chosen career and gain qualifications. Our Apprenticeship Hub offers you all the information you need including different levels of apprenticeships. We can also help you find an employer as part of your apprenticeship.
Apprenticeships are not just for young people, with people of all ages taking them on in order to progress at work, gain further qualifications or enter into a new career. Find out more about Sarah, who decided to retrain and start an apprenticeship in her dream career at fifty.
Key benefits of becoming an apprentice
- Earning a salary - apprentices do real jobs for real employers. If you are entering work for the ﬁrst time, you will start earning from day one of your Apprenticeship.
- Learn on the job - apprentices build up practical and theoretical skills, competencies and knowledge whilst gaining qualiﬁcations.
- Support during training - your employer or training provider's role is to ensure that your training fits your personal requirements. They will offer a structured programme that gives you the skills needed to do the job well and satisfy national standards.
- Prospects - Apprenticeships can be demanding but they are very rewarding and can lead to a successful career in your chosen area.
