Progressing to the workplace will enable your child to earn a salary and start pursuing a successful career.
Gaining an apprenticeship will enable your child to learn a trade or skill, earn a salary and combine with on-the-job training while studying for nationally recognised qualifications. With the new higher apprenticeships, your child can even study at degree level and beyond.
