National Apprenticeship Week 2016

Next week, from the 14th 18th of March is National Apprenticeship week. Many apprenticeships  will  be  offered  that  week  from  teachers  to  mechanics, cleaners  to  police  men and many more. During this week, many businesses offer more apprenticeships; this has dramatic effects on both the apprentices and the employers. 

Apprenticeships are one of the best ways to learn about a career.  students  need  apprenticeships  so  they  can  learn  how  the  job works and   get   training   for  a career, as sixth form and further education are not for everyone.

The Apprenticeship Week is a week to celebrate apprentices. Apprenticeships give young people a taste of their ideal job. Some people may say “An apprenticeship can take you anywhere”.

Apprenticeships are one of the best ways to try out a job and see what they’re about. Apprenticeships take about 1-4 years of learning depending how well you take in the information. Many young people have apprenticeships and normally start one as soon as they leave education or after sixth form. The bonus of an apprenticeship

is that you get paid for working.

An apprenticeship gives young people plenty of opportunities, as well as many life skills that will help them in later life in their careers.
