Apprenticeships can be confusing and hard to understand, whether you are the applicant, the employer or the parent. BESA Training is here to help, we will make the apprenticeship journey as simple as possible for everyone involved.
An apprenticeship is a real job with training, enabling you to earn whilst you learn. You will gain qualifications, which are recognised worldwide as well as a vast range of job-specific skills.
As an apprentice you will:
work alongside experienced staff
gain skills specific to your job
earn a wage and receive holiday pay
study towards a qualification either at college or a training centre for at least one day a week
Apprenticeships can take 1 - 4 years to complete depending on their level.
Apprenticeships in building engineering services are for both women and men aged 16 or over.
To apply for an apprenticeship you need to be:
Aged 16 and over
Living in the UK
Not in full-time education - you can apply whilst you are still at school but you will need to have left before starting your apprenticeship
You will need to have an employer before you start an apprenticeship, although you can still apply before you have one. BESA Training can help you arrange this.
