Who Could Benefit From an Access Apprenticeship?


An apprenticeship is an excellent education pathway if you're looking to get high-quality training for a skill that can shape your entire career. There are some incredible benefits of becoming an apprentice, including competitive pay, freedom and flexibility on your own terms.

We've spoken a lot about the benefits of apprenticeships in previous blogs, but we've never actually touched upon who could benefit from an apprenticeship. If you find yourself in one of the groups below, then maybe an apprenticeship is the perfect route for you or someone you know. 


1. School Leavers

Apprenticeships often appeal to school leavers as they offer an extremely practical approach to learning. Whilst some students may excel in examinations and written tasks, there are many that would rather be assessed through practical work. 

Trade apprenticeships are beneficial to school leavers as they can gain direct experience within a real work environment. This is great for employment and for developing general life skills such as time management, communication and problem-solving. 

Also, trade apprenticeships are great for employment retention. One study found that a whopping 85% of apprentices stay in employment, and 64% of these continue working with the same employer.

At Access Training, we understand the balance of practical assessments and theory. Our Access Apprenticeships allow for students to finish the theory section of their trade course without time constraints, ensuring they only pursue the practical assessments when they feel comfortable and ready to.


2. University Graduates

It's an old myth that apprenticeships are just for school leavers. Our trade apprenticeships are available to anyone over the age of 16. Whether you've just turned 16 or you're 61, there will always be a place for you on one of our Access Apprenticeship courses. 

University graduates may opt for one of our fast-track apprenticeship courses if they wish to upskill from their current degree, and it's an opportunity to earn while you learn. Our trade apprenticeships also give students excellent links within the industry, which is fantastic for networking and job progression in the future.


3. Career Changers

Choosing a career path can be tough. You may be in a position where you're looking for an exciting and new career after spending years doing the same thing. Many people turn towards to trades as working in the industry has many benefits, from competitive pay to brilliant work-life flexibility and balance. 

An Access Apprenticeship will allow you to learn a trade with no previous experience required. It's a chance for you to start from scratch and take control of your career. All of our Access Apprenticeships allow you to earn while you learn, so you'll be able to financially support yourself and your family throughout your trade course of choice. 


4. Parents of Access Training Students

If you're a parent of one of our students, then there are also many benefits for you if your child chooses to enrol onto one of our fast-track trade apprenticeship courses. You can rest assured that your child is getting high-quality trade training from our expert professionals specialising in gas engineering, electrical engineering, plumbing and carpentry.
