Apprenticeships with Total Assist

What you Need to Know About Apprenticeships-01



When apprenticeships first started, their objective was to give students another option after they left school. Although at the start, apprenticeships weren’t as popular 2015/16’s staggering figures have now stated that over 509,400 apprenticeships were completed across the United Kingdom.

16+ year olds have been given the opportunity to work at a placement while studying to deepen their knowledge and education about their selected topic. Without the added pressure of tuition fees, stress and possibly living away from home. Being an apprentice still teaches a student to be self sufficient, reliable and confident within a work environment developing further as a person as well as their knowledge of the job.

Over 150 different courses are now available to these students, some being job specific like Dental, Childcare or Retail qualifications where others are more business related like business admin, customer service or team leading.

The Government funded service also allows you to gain skills, experience and a qualification whilst you follow a clear structured programme showcasing your success over a minimum of 12 months.

Since 2002/03 changes were also made to the Modern Apprenticeship scheme to remove the 25 age limit. The invitation for an apprenticeship is now open to anyone and everyone allowing them to advance within their industry, this has contributed to the 9,500 apprentice increase.

Three different levels are offered to everyone, depending on their current experience. The grades are intermediate, advanced and higher levelled apprenticeships.
