Apprenticeships are a fantastic way for people of all ages to get started in a variety of exciting sectors and industries. Apprenticeship programs, which have grown in popularity in recent years, provide students with the opportunity to learn and obtain National Framework Qualifications while also gaining significant practical work experience. At Abcon, we are glad to be able to provide apprenticeships in a variety of industries. Here are four reasons why we think you should consider an Apprenticeship.
1. Earn while you Learn
An apprenticeship is a paid position that allows you to learn while also gaining useful work experience and qualifications. Instead of tuition fees, student loans and accommodation charges, apprentices are paid for receiving the training, support, and skills necessary for their role.
2. Gain High Quality “on-the-job” Training
An apprenticeship helps students acquire the skills and knowledge needed to become successful in their field. You’re not only learning the theory behind your job through off-the-job training; you’re also in the workplace, acquiring ‘hands on’ experience and learning from industry experts every day.
3. The Wide Range of Options to Choose From
With apprenticeships, there is something for everyone. There have never been so many great apprenticeship options available in such a diverse range of sectors. At Abcon, we’re proud to be able to offer 5 different programs, catering to a wide range of interests.
4. Hit the Ground Running
Apprenticeships really help unlock doors for students. Networking opportunities, continual employer help, and peer-to-peer support are all key benefits to apprenticeship programs, and gaining invaluable hands-on experience make apprentices very employable after their course is finished.
