Apprenticeships allow you to work and study for a qualification at the same time. This means you can get work experience (and a wage) as well as a qualification. You can do an apprenticeship at any age and there are different levels you can start at depending on your level of experience.

Be aware, the minimum wage for an apprentice is much lower than the National Living Wage. However, many employers pay their apprentices more than this and some pay the National Living Wage or normal salary.

Apprenticeships are full time and the minimum hours you must work are 30 hours a week.

You can find out more about apprenticeships including a video about the benefits on the Leeds Apprenticeship Hub website:
