Apprenticeships are a great alternative to university for more practical learners, those who prefer a vocational approach to studying, or those who have a more hands-on career in mind.

There are thousands available, stretching across 170 industries, with everything from dental nursing to construction to media and business apprenticeships to choose from.

Like at higher education routes an apprenticeship is hard work, but the benefits are fantastic – these are real jobs, and your child will earn whilst they learn, as well as gaining a recognised qualification at the end of it.

You can find out much more about apprenticeships, and check out what’s available at www.getingofar.gov.uk or gov.co.uk.
