1. Earn as you learn
Although the apprentice minimum wage is only £3.70, this is just the beginning and in fact many organisations offer more than this. As you go you'll earn more and the best part is you won't student debt!
You are learning from experienced professionals in your desired field. What more could you want?
Apprenticeships allow you to meet all people within a company, meaning it is a great way to network and earn contacts within your desired industry.
4. Transferable qualifications
Apprenticeships give you a nationally recognised qualification which means it is not tied down to one single industry. You can therefore explore different industries and see what is best for you.
Not only can you do intermediate or advanced apprenticeships, you can also do degree level apprenticeships. If you do well, you have the chance of being offered a full time job. This is great progress for the beginning of your career.
