Apprenticeships are for everyone – from Level 2 (GCSE level) to Level 7 (post-graduate or masters level!).  Apprenticeships provide routes into a variety of careers and are an excellent opportunity to earn, gain work experience, develop skills and achieve nationally recognised qualifications at the same time.  Apprenticeships also offer career development opportunities for current staff.
