The Apprentice

Unlike the TV series, apprenticeships are a great way for over 16s to learn as they work. They’re real jobs, with the pay and holiday pay to match, but where you also spend at least 20% of your time on training. Plus, you get a qualification at the end of it. There are apprenticeships in almost every industry, from healthcare and tourism to marketing and engineering. Get a taste of real work while you train: head to the GMACS site for more info and listings of apprenticeships that are open right now.
