What is an Apprenticeship?

An apprenticeship is a highly rewarding alternative to further education where you can earn whilst you learn. It is a combination of a job and an approved training programme which gives an individual the skills and experience required for a specific job role. It doesn't matter what time of year you apply either as employers can recruit new staff or enrol current staff onto an apprenticeship programme at any time to up-skill their workforce. By completing an apprenticeship with us, you can gain qualifications from NGB Level 2 Multi Skills Coaching to Paediatric First Aid and beyond!

Our apprenticeship duration is a 14-month work-based programme with elements of on and off-the-job training. Employing an apprentice is like employing any other member of staff, but they must be contracted for at least 30 hours a week and have a contract that covers the duration of their apprenticeship programme.

Fit For Sport Apprentice Story

"Instead of just learning and not getting experience at school you can get the important experience that employers like when you go to apply for future jobs. And a nice bonus is that you get a qualification at the end of it. For me, it seemed a better option than university. Some people require a university or want that experience but for me, an apprenticeship seemed the best path."

Callum - Business Administrator Apprentice
