Apprenticeships can pave a direct route into different career branches, and give you the chance to earn while you learn. Although traditional college and university courses can offer academic qualifications and skills, apprenticeships give the chance to accumulate employment experience, qualifications and get paid whilst doing so.
To celebrate National Apprenticeship Week 2020, we have conducted some research to find out which apprenticeships are the most rewarding in terms of progression opportunity and income, and thankfully our recruitment sectors are proven to take the lead.
