1. The chance to be your best.
When you start an apprenticeship, you’ll learn a skilled trade from a master craftsman. No matter which field you choose, an apprenticeship will let you work with someone who’s an expert and who will help you learn to be an expert too. You’ll learn to do work you love, and you’ll have the chance to be your best.
2. Practical skills you can use.
Jobs that start with an apprenticeship are highly skilled, and they are in high demand. After all, not everyone can do one of these jobs! It takes specialised training, which you’ll gain through your apprenticeship. Once you’ve completed the apprenticeship, you’ll have credentials that will be valued anywhere you go.
3. Earn while you learn.
People don’t usually get paid to learn something new! But as an apprentice, you’ll learn a new skill and get paid while you learn. Apprenticeships combine learning with on-the-job training. At the end of the apprenticeship, you can keep your job and earn a higher salary as a skilled craftsman. Or, you can take your skills to a new job.
4. Great opportunities.
There are apprenticeships in nearly every field you can imagine: from carpentry, concreting, painting to civil plant operations. That means you can find an apprenticeship for nearly any career you want. And, if you complete an apprenticeship, you’ll have the skills and job experience to earn higher wages and get better opportunities than people who have entered your field without an apprenticeship.
5. A secure future.
With an apprenticeship, you’ll have the chance to gain the skills and technical know-how to become one of the best in your field. Achieving such a high level of skill will lead to a higher salary and greater job opportunities. And that will mean that your future is secure.
