Can I do an Apprenticeship?
There are very few limiting factors now in being eligible for an Apprenticeship.
There are no age limitations and you can also be a graduate. The only limiting factor is that you have not already studied what is in your Apprenticeship*.
If you already have a role and would like to do an apprenticeship, you also need to make sure that you work in a relevant job role. If you wish to do the Insurance Practitioner Standard, you could not work in IT, you must work in an insurance role in order to be able to gain and show your competence.
You may be a school leaver or a recent graduate and there are various schemes across multiple industries to help you find your first role and Apprenticeship.
*Please note you are not able to complete an Apprenticeship if you have already obtained a qualification in the same subject area, at the same level. So for example if you have a Degree in Accountancy (equivalent to a Level 6), you can’t complete an Accountancy Apprenticeship at Levels 2-6).
