What is an Apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships are for anyone aged 16+. Being an apprentice means that you have a job that includes gaining recognised qualifications and essential skills whilst you are working and earning a wage.

Unlike academic courses at university or college, an apprenticeship allows you to develop your skills and qualifications in the workplace. There are a wide range of apprenticeship programmes available with Train4 that can be undertaken in a huge number of different sectors and industries.

Is an Apprenticeship Right For Me?

Year on year, apprenticeships are increasing in popularity and this can open doors to a bright future in your career. Apprenticeships are best suited to those people who want to get into the workplace straight away, or who prefer a hands-on approach to learning. 

The best way to decide whether an apprenticeship is right for you is to think of your career ambitions and do your research. Do you know anyone who has done an apprenticeship? Gain their perspectives and thoughts. We can also provide you with helpful information about apprenticeships.

How Train4 Can Help?

At Train4, we can help you to find and apply for an apprenticeship programme with an employer. Our apprenticeship training programme provides access to a wide range of exciting career opportunities within the IT, customer service, construction and security industries. To ensure the best possible chances of success for all participants; we deliver a pre-training programme which supports achievement of the functional skills qualifications before we enrol anyone on to the full programme.

One of the key strengths of our programme is the way in which our employer hosts are fully embedded into the process so that the learner, assessor and the employer sit down at every visit to discuss progress and understand what the business objectives are. This helps us to quickly identify any skills or knowledge gaps and offer training solutions that are bespoke to the organisation and boost productivity in the shortest timeframes possible.

All learners are assigned a SMART Support Team “buddy” who works alongside their assessor and maintains regular contact with them in between their visits. This ensures a constant channel of communication and support is available which helps to overcome challenges or concerns without it impacting on progress or productivity.

How Much Do I Get Paid?

If you are a new apprentice the apprenticeship minimum wage is £3.70 per hour if you are under 19 (or over 19 and in your first year of apprenticeship learning). In terms of other employer benefits such as holiday entitlement, all apprentices are eligible for the same benefits as other employees. More information can be found on the Gov.uk website.
