Who is a Pre-Apprenticeship for?
A Pre-Apprenticeship is for 16-18-year olds who want to get into the working world.
How long will my Pre-Apprenticeship programme take to complete?
It depends on which programme you undertake and how ready for the working world you are – but on average they last between 6–26 weeks.
How are Pre-Apprenticeships taught?
Like all of our programmes, you’ll spend time in workshops and learning at one of our campuses, as well as the opportunity to get some real work experience in a real company.
Will I get paid?
You won’t get paid a salary whilst you’re completing your Pre-Apprenticeship, although we do encourage employers to assist with costs such as travel expenses and lunch. The good news is that your parent or carer can continue to claim child benefit whilst you complete your programme.
What are my progression opportunities?
After you complete your Pre-Apprenticeship programme, we’ll help you find the perfect next step – whether that’s a full-time course to develop your knowledge and skills further, or straight onto a full Apprenticeship.
