Why should I do an Apprenticeship?
Apprenticeships are no longer just a career step for school leavers. The new Apprenticeship standards mean that anyone, regardless of age or past qualifications, can become an apprentice.
With an Apprenticeship, you can learn and progress your career at the same time. If you job role is evolving and you need to retrain then an Apprenticeship would allow you to work whilst you study.
You might choose an Apprenticeship to benefit from the skill and behaviour development, and structured learning environment, that Apprenticeships offer. You get to study in a work environment, and experience hands-on job experience that links directly to your qualification.
Building on your current career
An Apprenticeship isn’t just about the qualification - it’s about building the essential skills you need to advance your career. It shows that you have commitment and dedication to your profession and that you want to move ahead, not just stay in the position that you are in at the moment.
An Apprenticeship takes between one to around three years to complete, but this depends on the level of Apprenticeship you want to take. The range of levels can equate to the equivalent of GCSEs, A Levels and Foundation and Masters Degrees.
If you choose Kaplan as your Apprenticeship learning provider, we offer multiple learning methods to best suit your lifestyle. These include classroom, Live Online and OnDemand learning. Some apprentices prefer face-to-face classroom learning, while others may favour learning at home with OnDemand. Due to the current COVID restrictions we have had to limit our classroom delivery so you’ll need to bear this in mind when choosing your study method.
