What is an Apprenticeship?

An Apprenticeship is a structured training programme for employees at any stage of their career. They can be starting their first job, changing their job, or be advancing their skills.

Apprenticeships are available at different skill levels from Level 2 (equivalent to 5 GCSEs) to Level 6 (comparable to a bachelor or masters degree). They take between one and six years to complete, but most take no more than two years.

It makes no difference to a person’s eligibility or funding if they have previous qualifications, such as a degree, or not.

How much does an apprenticeship cost?

You can get help from the Government to pay for Apprenticeship Training.

The amount you pay depends on whether you are a big enough employer to pay the Apprenticeship Levy (you pay more than £3 million in salaries every year) or not.

All employers must now set up a Digital Apprenticeship Service account with the Education and Skills Funding Agency to manage their Apprenticeship funding.
