Increasingly, our Year 11 students are considering an apprenticeship as an alternative to full-time study at college. An apprenticeship combines practical on the job training with study for an approved qualification. Apprentices receive a salary whilst working for their employer, but are expected to also complete a programme of study (usually by attending college one day per week) that will give them a relevant and industry-standard qualification.
