Why are apprenticeships important?

An apprenticeship can get you on the right path to your dream career. It's an exciting, hands-on way of learning that allows you to put your skills to practice, whilst getting paid a decent salary. You can also complete our apprenticeships at any age, whether it be for a complete career change or for building on your current skills!

If you're looking for a new career, or you're looking to expand your skill set, then becoming an apprentice may be your perfect option. At Access Training we offer paid routes into the trades with our Earn While You Learn initiative. In this blog, we'll explore the importance of apprenticeships and why it might just be the best decision you ever make!

 

Benefits of apprenticeships

 

1. Get hands-on experience

At Access Training, you can rest assured that you will be learning alongside some of the best trade tutors around with a wealth of knowledge and experience. With their guidance and support, you will be able to gain hands-on experience which will help you develop and enhance your skills as a tradesperson.

 

2. Professional learning support

When you enrol onto one of our paid apprenticeships in plumbing, gas or electrical work, you will receive ongoing career support alongside your trade training. Apprenticeships often offer more support than regular jobs, as you can start an apprenticeship with no experience.

Like traditional apprenticeships, you will have full access to our employability resources and dedicated recruitment team who can help find the right role for you.  Our support team will provide guidance, support and advice on all things related to your course. Even better - you'll have access to this support system up to 3 years after enrolment

 

3. Get paid!

One of the biggest advantages of starting an apprenticeship is the fact that you can start getting paid ASAP! With our Earn While You Learn route, you'll be able to earn on average £27,000 a year while gaining skills and knowledge in your chosen field.

There's also a good work/life balance available as you'll have a mix of on-site and at-home learning, allowing you to balance your personal life with your studies and training.

 

4. Gain industry recognised qualifications

With an apprenticeship, you'll gain qualifications that will help you throughout your whole career. These qualifications will aid your career in going from strength to strength as you validate and enhance your skills.
