Apprenticeship Solutions is an Apprenticeship Training Agency which means that you will have more opportunities available to you when looking to secure an Apprenticeship.
You will know that the current job market is not as good as it could be, however that should not deter you from seeking an Apprenticeship.
Apprenticeships are the only way to gain real work experience whilst earning a wage and gaining the qualifications you need. You have no fees to pay, no loan to pay back at the end of your training and the likelihood that you will either remain with the employer who supports you through your Apprenticeship or move to alternative employment is extremely high.
The only way you can secure an Apprenticeship is by having an employer. The traditional apprentice is employed from day one, however there are not the number of opportunities available to provide everyone who wants an Apprenticeship with a place.
Therefore the Government has introduced another option for employers to recruit apprentices, which is similar to a Recruitment Agency, where you are employed direct by the Agency and the employer hosts your Apprenticeship.
This is great because you get the best of both worlds. You are not only employed by Apprenticeship Solutions, but you also have a real job of work in a real employer who will support you through your Apprenticeship.
The aim is that during or on completion of the Apprenticeship your host employer will recognise the contribution you are making and will want to employ you – by this time you will have a great set of skills which will be of interest to any future employer.
It’s your foot in the door to a successful future!
