While studying for a qualification learners will be earning a wage - rates vary between organisations.
By the end of their apprenticeship, learners will have an accredited qualification such as a BTEC.
Chance of permanent position
Some employers will guarantee a paid position when learners complete their apprenticeship, others may offer interviews for positions. They’ll also make connections in the organisation and employers may contact them 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.
