What is an apprenticeship?

Whether you’re leaving school, looking to retrain, or you want to upskill in your current role, an apprenticeship is a great opportunity that allows you to gain new skills and knowledge, whilst earning a wage. Apprenticeships combine ‘on-the-job’ training with ‘off-the-job’ teaching, an approach where theory and practice go hand in hand. 

The duration of each apprenticeship is determined by the specific apprenticeship standard; however, it is important to note that all apprenticeships come with a minimum duration of 12 months.

At MSSC we are committed to offering excellent apprenticeship programs that cater to industry needs. Our experienced trainers and industry partners ensure that apprentices receive comprehensive training and gain valuable insights to enhance their career prospects.  

An apprenticeship is funded from contributions made by the government and your employer, so does not cost you a thing!

How to become an Apprentice?

To become an apprentice, you must:

  • be 16 or over.
  • not already be in full-time education.
  • live in England.

You can start an apprenticeship whether you’re starting your career, want a change or you're upskilling in your current job. You can have a previous qualification like a degree and still start an apprenticeship.
