What is an Apprenticeship?

An Apprenticeship is a structured work-based training programme consisting of workplace learning, formal off the job training and the opportunity to practice and embed new skills in a real work context.

Being an apprentice offers many great opportunities. You’ll meet new people, learn new skills and gain new qualifications. It means working for an employer and discovering things about yourself that you never knew before.

Apprenticeships provide valuable hands on experience and technical knowledge, along with functional and personal skills required for career progression.

YMCA Somerset Coast has loads of apprenticeships available, just ask a member of staff for more details.
