What are Manchester Apprenticeships?
Manchester apprenticeships are real jobs that provide training which would mean you can earn and learn whilst gaining a nationally recognised qualification. Most apprenticeships last for 12 months but they can be anywhere from 1-4 years long depending on the level. You may have to attend College, but in some cases the training is done in the workplace.
What are the benefits?
You earn at least £3.40 per hour while you work towards a nationally recognised qualification. Many companies pay over the minimum wage and offer great perks too. If you attend College without an apprenticeship, you only get the qualification. With an apprenticeship you get qualified, get paid, get experience on your C.V., and get paid holiday! Now that’s better right?
What are the entry requirements?
The only qualifications that employers look for are GCSE results, many companies prefer candidates to have achieved A – C GCSE in Maths and English. Don’t worry if you didn’t do that well! If you got D or lower you may need to complete functional skills during the apprenticeship.
