What is an apprenticeship?

An apprenticeship is a real job with training.

You are employed by a top local company and paid a wage. Skills Group helps you to gain the trade specific skills you need for your job in our specialist training centres with industry experts. You then practise your newly acquired skills in your workplace. Skills Group trainers will develop learning plans with you and review your progress against your targets in the workplace.

An apprenticeship offers you the perfect way to get your foot on the career ladder, and the progression opportunities are endless. Many Skills Group apprentices have gone on to work for multi-national companies, gain degrees, work overseas and set-up their own businesses.
