You don’t have to wait to until you leave school to get started. Many schools now offer the option for students to start a New Apprenticeship while attending school.

No two businesses are the same, and that is why apprenticeships should been designed to be flexible, while at the same time providing nationally recognised quality training developed by industry for industry.
