The world is changing fast and to get ahead you need up to date skills. But you don’t need to sit in a classroom all day to get them – there are other ways of learning that could suit you.

An apprenticeship is a real job with training so you can earn while you learn and get recognised qualifications as you go.

If you live in England, are over 16 and not in full-time education, you can apply.

They take between one and four years to complete and cover 1,200 job roles, in a range of industries, from engineering to financial advice, veterinary nursing to accountancy.

Read more about the different types of apprenticeships and job roles available in the apprenticeships section of the GOV.UK website.  Apprenticeships

If you're interested in an apprenticeship but need more skills and experience in order to get onto one, a traineeship could be for you. A traineeship can last anything from six weeks to six months and is a work placement that combines work experience with skills training.  Gov Traineeships
