Apprenticeships are becoming an increasingly popular alternative to college or university for young people. As a parent, you may want to know more about apprenticeships before your child partakes in one.
What is an Apprenticeship?
An apprenticeship offers a real job that comes hand-in-hand with training. The training that is supplied is specific to the job role and provides a qualification upon successful completion.
Apprenticeships vary in length, usually around 12-18 months. During the programme, learners will receive 20% off-the-job training.
Off-the-job training is required for the learner to gain their qualification. It consists of time spent during working hours and in a learning environment with our Tutors and Skills Coaches.
It is a great alternative to both college and university and appeals to future employers due to the experience your child will have received.
What Will Your Child Learn?
Depending on what apprenticeship your child chooses to undertake, they will learn specific skills to their job role. We currently offer an apprenticeship in Digital Marketing, which means that your child will be emerged into the digital world and will learn new things such as social media management, email campaigns, coding, design and customer relationship marketing.
Are Apprenticeships Worthwhile?
An apprenticeship is definitely worthwhile. It allows you to expand your knowledge and skills whilst gaining experience in your chosen career. The Digital Marketer Apprenticeship that is offered by The B2W Group lasts 18 months, so it allows enough time to gain new knowledge and apply them in the workplace. Additionally, your child wont need to pay back any loans like they would have to if they went to University. Instead, they will be paid for their work.
