BELIEVE & ACHIEVE
An Apprenticeship is a real job with training so you can earn while you learn
and pick up recognised qualifications as you go. If you live in England, are
over 16 and not in full time education you can apply. They take between one and
four years to complete and cover 1,400 job roles in a wide range of industries.
Think about where a qualification could take you in your career - decide on the kind of skills and knowledge that you will need to get ahead. If you are already employed, you may want to talk to your employer to help you with this. Contact Tameside College on 0161 908 6608 or
apply online here.
Training can be classroom based, in a workshop or in a workplace, depending on the subject and on the learning provider.
Getting qualified while on the job can also mean:
The employer will give you an induction into the company and your role. They provide on-the-job training and pay your wages. Each apprentice has a manager at work who will be responsible for helping you throughout your training.
You can apply at any time of year. When you begin the work-based training depends upon the availability of a position at an employer.
The length of an Apprenticeship varies depending on prior skills levels of the apprentice, the qualification being obtained and industry sector. Generally, Apprenticeships take between one and four years to complete.
