Apprenticeships are an excellent way to gain nationally recognised qualifications and valuable workplace skills, all whilst earning! Why wouldn’t you be interested in that as a package?
Training in the skills which employers want, an apprenticeship gives you choice in your career. Following your apprenticeship, you will most probably continue working for your employer or progress to higher education at college or university. The options are varied and exciting.
The main benefits of apprenticeships are:
- Earning a wage
- Paid holiday
- Gaining a nationally recognised qualification
- Learning through working alongside experienced staff
- Learning job specific skills
- Starting your training at any point in the year
Apprenticeships are designed to allow you to ‘earn while you learn’ with most time spent at your workplace and usually training away from the workplace ‘off-the-job’ at a college or training provider.
Apprenticeships in Landbased Engineering are available at Level 2 (Foundation) and Level 3 (Advanced). Both lead to Work-based Diplomas – the certificates that qualify you as a skilled crafts person or technician and something that will remain with you for life.
