Apprenticeships are jobs with training leading to further qualifications. There are 4 levels of apprenticeships:


  • Intermediate

  • Advanced

  • Higher

  • Degree


Intermediate and advanced apprenticeships can be done straight after year 11, but higher and degree apprenticeships require level 3 qualifications (A’levels, BTECs, Diplomas) so they are usually taken after a college course or after completing an advanced apprenticeship at age 18.
