Apprenticeships are open to everyone. Become an apprentice in the financial services sector and you’ll be employed in a real job, receiving a salary whilst you study a recognised industry qualification at no cost to you.
Sound appealing? If so, an apprenticeship could be the perfect route for you.
As an apprentice, your employer will provide a structured programme to help you develop your skills in the workplace alongside other employees. You’ll also spend time away from your daily job, undertaking the more formal ‘training’ part of your apprenticeship. This may mean attending classes once a week, in blocks or even studying online. It will be up to your employer to decide which approach works best.
