With an apprenticeship, you can earn money while getting skills and qualifications.
Visit the Skills website for information about apprenticeships and COVID-19.
If you’re 16 or older, and interested in a career in one of the industries that offer apprenticeships, you may be able to earn a qualification while you work.
Choose the industry, job type and region you would like to work in and then contact the relevant industry training organisation (ITO) for more information.
If you already have skills and knowledge in your area of interest, find out if you can have these credited to your apprenticeship.
An ITO can help you work out what you need to do, and what qualifications you can get.
Pre-trade training helps you get knowledge and practical skills and a taste of working in a particular industry. It shows employers you’re ready for an apprenticeship.
