Why Choose An Apprenticeship?

Kickstart your career with an apprenticeship and earn as you learn.

Across North Wales and beyond, companies are recruiting for apprenticeships and training people in the skills they need to succeed in their career.

As an apprentice you will earn whilst you learn, gaining skills, knowledge, experience and recognised qualifications along the way. Whether you’re aged between 16 and 19 or 20 and over, a range of apprenticeship options may be available to you.

If you enjoy working with children, a childcare apprenticeship could be the perfect career for you!

People studying towards this qualification need to be working in regulated childcare settings with families and children under the age of 8 and/or NHS children’s services for those working with families and children aged 0-19.

Apprentices will attend workshops and learn the core knowledge as well as being assessed in the workplace by our industry served assessing teams.

Learners in this industry will need lots of energy, creativity and be able to work well as part of a team.
