Apprenticeships in Digital

An apprenticeship is a real job where you get paid whilst you learn and gain the skills and experience in your chosen field. An apprenticeship takes between 1-6 years depending on the area and level you choose and on your previous experience.

To become an apprentice, you must:

  • be 16 or over
  • not already in full-time education
  • live in England

You can start an apprenticeship if you are at the start of your career, you want to change and try something new or you want to upskill in your current job.

Different apprenticeships have different levels and you can start an apprenticeship at any level but if you think you need more skills or qualifications you could look at a traineeship first.

Level Equivalent Education Level
Intermediate 2 GCSE
Advanced 3 A Level
Higher 4,5,6 Foundation Degree and Above
Degree 6,7 Bachelors or Masters Degree
