“I am grateful for the opportunities Keepmoat have provided, and I am glad I took the decision to be an apprentice “
Apprenticeships offer a direct alternative to full-time higher education for those who would prefer to start employment. An Apprenticeship allows you to combine work with study. As an Apprentice you will earn a wage whilst studying a nationally recognised qualification.
During an Apprenticeship you will gain real knowledge, skills, and experience required for your specific career, and possibly professional accreditation. You'll also be constantly developing your transferable technical skills and your soft skills, which are highly valued by employers. These include communication, teamwork and problem solving, as well as knowledge of IT and the application of numbers.
Your investment in high level training and study can provide a long term career path and increase your earnings potential and future opportunities.
Levels of Apprenticeship
There are four different levels of apprenticeship:
- Intermediate - equivalent to five good GCSE passes.
- Advanced - equivalent to two A-level passes.
- Higher - equivalent to the first stages of higher education, such as a foundation degree.
- Degree - comparable to a Bachelors or Masters degree. Find out more at degree apprenticeships.
