Apprenticeships are a great way to earn a wage and work alongside experienced staff to gain job-specific skills.
You will receive a regular wage with paid holidays and the same benefits as other employees. As your skills develop, your pay will increase accordingly. You may also get additional money for essential books, clothing or equipment, or help with a disability.
The Apprenticeship, Traineeship and Jobs Growth Wales Programmes, led by the Welsh Government, are supported by the European Social Fund.
The Skills for Industry project is part funded by the European Social Fund through the Welsh Government

ApprenticeshipsThere’s no better way to earn while you learn than signing up for an apprenticeship. You don’t just get a wage but you’ll also get valuable experience in the industry you want to work in, topped off with a qualification to help you progress in your chosen career. Apprenticeships are available to anyone over the age of 16.
Higher Apprenticeships lead to a nationally recognised qualification at either Level 4 or 5, equivalent to a higher education certificate, a higher education diploma or a foundation degree.
