Recruitment, training and apprentices

3. Apprenticeships

Apprenticeships combine practical training in a job alongside studies.

Apprenticeships are available in a wide range of industries, from large national companies to smaller local companies. Apprentices are generally employed for a minimum of 30 hours per week and earn a real wage.

Apprenticeships can be a great way for an employer to work young people up to gain a job at their company.
