While studying for a qualification you’ll be earning a wage - rates vary between organisations.
By the end of your apprenticeship you will have an accredited qualification such as a BTEC.
Chance of permanent position
Some employers will guarantee a paid position when you complete your apprenticeship, others may offer interviews for positions. You’ll also make connections in the organisation and they may contact you for future openings.
Attractive to employers
A candidate who has already worked in a department or organisation and has experienced practical elements of a role can be more attractive to recruitment managers than someone with no experience.
