Earn while you learn is the term used to best describe an Apprenticeship because it combines paid work with learning that will help an employee achieve a nationally recognised qualification at the end of it. Apprenticeships are no longer just for people of school leaving age and are designed to be available to as many people as possible – even those already in a job.
The new Apprenticeship Levy will encourage this even more as there will be money set aside for businesses to provide training and development to their employees. This means that employees can continue their jobs and study for an Apprenticeship at the same time.

"The real appeal of gaining an NVQ Level 2 qualification through an Apprenticeship is being able to learn while you work and earn. And I don’t have to go to college, yet I get all the support I need, whenever I need it from my Assessor."

"Engaging with Apprentices has been a great choice for us, we have worked with some talented individuals who have arrived with fresh ideas and innovative thinking to the way we do things. They have not been afraid to ‘get stuck in’ and learn about how our business works, they have taken part in a multitude of tasks and projects and have made a significant contribution in their time with us.
On top of all this, they have gained a useful qualification and valuable experience which will help them in their future career".
Toni Williams, Learning Services Director
"From gaining my Diploma in Business Administration while having the opportunity to work within the HR Shared Service I feel I have gained valuable experience that will help me start my career and hopefully secure a position here at Serco.
I have worked with several teams including; Transitions, Learning and Development, Service Operations and Recruitment. This is experience that I would have never received at my age without the Apprenticeship scheme".
Joanna Smith, Business Administration Diploma - HR Shared Services
"The Apprenticeship scheme has been a really great experience as it has taught me many transferable life skills and helped me to establish what I want to do in the future. If it wasn't for the scheme I believe it would have taken me much longer to achieve my goals and be part of a professional HR service. It has opened up many opportunities for me, for which I am grateful".
