The Benefits of Doing an Apprenticeship
In recent years, apprenticeships have become much more popular in the UK, particularly as the option of getting a degree has become more expensive. From both an employer’s perspective and a learner’s perspective an apprenticeship can have multiple benefits.
It is no wonder therefore that the UK government is trying to encourage young people to go down this path. If it goes well for them, it can really open up their future. This short article outlines some of the main benefits.
- Earn while you learn
On average, UK apprentices can earn up to £400 a month. Some will earn even more than this depending on the employer. This should pay for all of your living expenses and still leave you with some to spare. The major plus point of course is that you would normally be paying for education or training. You don’t have to with an apprenticeship.
- Increase your future earning potential
As soon as you have finished your apprenticeship, most employers will choose to hire you on an increased salary rate.
- Receive bespoke training and learn the skills that the employer wants
Because you are learning directly from your employer and learning on the job you will be able to get the exact skills that you need.
- Become more confident
By doing an apprenticeship you will gain more confidence both for what you are learning about but also in life generally.
