About apprenticeships and traineeships
Apprenticeships combine practical training in a job with study.
You can do an apprenticeship if you are over 16 years old, live in England and are not in full-time education.
If an apprenticeship is not right for you, or you don’t have the skill and experience to do an apprenticeship right now, you may be able to do a traineeship or a supported internship.
