Earn while you learn
Apprenticeships combine working whilst gaining a qualification. In most cases the Apprentice comes into college one day a week with the remainder of the week spent at work. Apprentices are for people who want the best of both worlds – earning whilst learning. Working in industry alongside experienced staff means you learn relevant skills and put your college training into practice.

How does an Apprenticeship help your career?
Apprenticeships can be demanding but the rewards are worth it – when you finish studying you already have valuable work experience that gives employers the skills they want. Advanced Apprentices also have the option of applying to university courses and several universities in Sussex have pledged to recognize Advanced Apprenticeships as an entry route for relevant courses (download the pledge leaflet here ).
The Apprenticeship Framework includes a technical qualification such as a BTEC or City & Guilds, a work-based qualification NVQ, Functional Skills such as communication, using new technology or working in teams, and knowledge of what it means to be an employee.
