An apprenticeship is a genuine job and under all circumstances an apprentice will be employed from day one. Apprenticeships combine practical training in a job with study. An apprentice will: – work alongside experienced staff – gain job-specific skills – earn a wage and get holiday pay – be given time for study related to their role (the equivalent of one day a week)
The ‘go-to’ website to find out more about apprenticeships and vacancies near to where you live is the National Apprenticeship Service.
The Disability Rights UK website offers support in pursuing your apprenticeship and training goals.
For more information, Disability Rights UK have prepared a downloadable document to give comprehensive advice on guidance on how to apply for an apprenticeship or how to get help/support when you are in a job. Click here to see the document.
