An apprenticeship is basically a job with training. You’ll get paid a wage and you’ll also get the chance to study towards a qualification.
Usually you’ll work four days a week and have one day for studying. The main benefit is that you’ll get lots of practical “on the job” experience while also getting a qualification too – both great for your CV and job applications.
This option could work for you if you want to start earning while continuing to study. Lots of employers rate apprentices because they finish their training with bags of real life work experience.
Apprenticeships can take anywhere from one to four years, depending on their level.
