Choose to earn and learn

Apprenticeships and Traineeships are an excellent way of gaining workplace experience and a qualification at the same time.

During a Traineeship (sometimes known as a pre-Apprenticeship) you will work towards getting your English and Maths, whilst preparing for an Apprenticeship. Although you don’t get paid a salary, you may get your travel paid for.
www.gov.uk/find-traineeship has more information.

As an Apprentice, you do earn whilst you learn (wages do vary). Search www.gov.uk/apprenticeships-guide to find out more about Apprenticeships.
