What is an Apprenticeship?

An Apprenticeship is a real job with training. You will receive both on and off the job training which will typically involve attending college for up to one day per week. By the end of your Apprenticeship, you’ll have gained the knowledge, skills and experience needed to either succeed in your chosen career or progress onto the next Apprenticeship.

Sounds good right?

KC Apprenticeships work with over 250 fantastic companies in the area and we offer a range of Apprenticeships programmes to suit everybody.


One of the great things about being an apprentice, is you earn whilst you learn. You’ll earn at least National Minimum apprentice Wage whilst you train, this is at least £4.15 per hour, with many employers paying more


You’ll be on a contract of employment with your employer, so you’ll work for at least 30 hours per week, this includes any time spent training at college or in the workplace.


Apprenticeships are a mixture of “on” and “off” the job training. You’ll usually be in College for up to one day a week, the rest of the time you’ll be based at your workplace.


Apprenticeships typically last between 1-5 years depending on the level and standard, it will also take account of your prior skills.
