How to become an apprentice 

Apprentices have to employed.  As an apprentice, you will be doing a real job with hands-on experience, a salary, and training to national standards.  To find out becoming an apprentice, check out information on the government website: What is an apprentice?

Seeking employment as an apprentice 

If you are unemployed, over 16 and living in England, you can register on the Find an Apprenticeship website to be alerted to apprenticeship vacancies that you can apply for.

Please be aware that we work with employers to train apprentices but The Learning Institute cannot find an apprenticeship for you.

Employed but taking on a new role 

If you are taking on a new role, your employer may be able to access funding to pay for apprenticeship training.  There will need to be an appropriate apprenticeship standard, which substantially covers the knowledge, skills and behaviours for your new job role.  The Learning Institute can assist you in finding the appropriate standard but your employer will need to agree to you undertaking the apprenticeship.

Employed but role is changing, requiring new skills and knowledge
 

If your current role is changing and you need substantially new knowledge and skills to complete it, your employer may be able to access funding to pay for apprenticeship training.  There will need to be an appropriate apprenticeship standard, which relates to your changed role.  The Learning Institute can assist you in finding the appropriate standard but your employer will need to agree to you undertaking the apprenticeship.
