An apprenticeship is where you get to work and gain a qualification at the same time.
There are different apprenticeship levels. These levels are dependent on the role and qualification you will gain and will decide the amount you are paid.
The levels are:
|Level||Name||Equivalent Education Level|
|Level 2||Intermediate||5 GCSE's|
|Level 3||Advanced||2 A level passes|
|Level 4, 5, 6 and 7||Higher||Foundation degree and above|
|Level 6 and 7||Degree||Bachelor's or Master's degree|
The minimum amount you can earn is £3.50 per hour but many companies will pay more than this. When applying for an apprenticeship the wage should be on the job listing.
