Apprenticeships make sure you’re ‘job ready’ for the role you have trained for. Apprentices earn a salary right from day one of their employment and training. If you think you need better skills and need more work experience so that you’re ready to apply for your chosen apprenticeship – you could consider doing a traineeship. If you are interested in an apprenticeship, you must also have a back up plan and apply for a course as well.

Here are some links with help finding apprenticeships
