Looking for a career change?

Go for an Apprenticeship job.

First For Apprenticeships

Apprenticeships are an ideal route into a career – taking you from novice to expert.

Gone are the days of apprenticeships being soley for 16 to 18 year olds and limited to trades. Today, there are over 100 different modern apprenticeships across thousands of jobs. And age isn’t a factor anymore. In April 2017 the apprenticeship model was rebuilt, meaning that age isn’t a deterrent to employers as government funding is the same for anyone over 19. So If you’re thinking of a new career, why not go for an apprenticeship job.

Quality Training

Our apprenticeships deliver quality training, helping you reach your full potential, no matter what industry you want to work in.

Already a Graduate?

So you’ve been to college or even university and aren’t having luck in the job market – or maybe you just want to move into a different area. In the past, apprenticeships would have been off-limits if you had already studied in higher education – not so anymore. Even if you have a master’s degree you can start an apprenticeship – the only limit being that the subject you studied at university must not be the same as the apprenticeship.

Apprenticeships are specifically aimed at filling skill-gaps and training people from the bottom up, so if you studied dental nursing you can’t do a dental nursing apprenticeship. Digital marketing though? Go for it!

Career change?

So you’re thinking of changing your career? You’re not alone. A study by First Direct found that 47% of Brits are unsatisfied with their careers, with 43% having a desire to switch careers in the next two years – 25% of people citing a desire to learn new skills as being the drive for the move.

An apprenticeship is a great way of getting a foot in the door of a new vocation. With transferable soft skills, you’ll immediately be appealing to an employer and experience in the workplace will tend to mean a stronger work ethic compared to school leaver; a strong advantage. So if you’re considering a career change, consider an apprenticeship – it could lead to the job that’s perfect for you.
