What Are The Advantages of Becoming An Apprentice in Manchester?


Many Manchester students are leaving school or college and are not really sure what to do next. You have plenty of options, but the ultimate goal is the same, and that is to land a job. Some of you will be thinking about Uni, or maybe studying at college for better qualifications that could make you more employable.

Becoming an apprentice in Manchester is a serious option to consider as it is a great way to get a job in the industry you want to work in.

Apprenticeships are real jobs with training that leads to a nationally recognised qualification. As paid employees, apprentices earn a wage and learn on the job. As an apprentice you will go to college to study theory which you can then apply in the workplace with your chosen employer.

While getting paid a salary is a really attractive option to students, you will actually earn something that is more valuable than money, especially when you are trying to build the foundations of a successful career…and that is real life work experience.

Many students that get great qualifications (even from University) but still struggle to get a job because they simply don’t have experience in the workplace that employers want. This is where apprentices really do benefit the most, and is by far the most important thing to consider.


Besides getting paid a salary and earning an NVQ, you also have the vital work experience to put on your CV as well as learning real skills that make you employable.  We strongly believe that this gives you a huge advantage when applying for a job in the future. You also have increased future earning potential as apprentices normally get a pay increase when they complete their training, and research suggests that apprentices can earn on average £100,000 more over their career compared to other employees. Apprentices generally have better job security and have the potential to land a permanent job in the company that provides the Apprenticeship, once completed.**

You won’t be alone during the process either, the employer or training provider we find for you will make sure you have right support via an assessor and a mentor who will guide you and be there for you when you need it.

So, whichever path you choose to walk, remember, the end target is the same. That is to get a good job and build a lasting career.  Apprenticeships are the complete solution that offer all the things you need to succeed;  from making money, getting qualified, getting a foot in door of a company, gaining experience and building a CV that will help you in the future.
