Can You Get An Apprenticeship Without Any Experience

In a nutshell, you certainly can get an apprenticeship without any experience! Even if you lack experience, many apprenticeship programmes are accessible to you.

Apprenticeships are categorised based on their difficulty level. “Intermediate apprenticeships” do not always need any qualifications. These apprenticeships are often known as entry-level or level 2 apprenticeships.

Intermediate apprenticeships often span one to two years. They provide a work-based certification, such as an NVQ level 2, and a knowledge-based certificate, such as a BTEC. If completed, intermediate apprenticeships are equal to five GCSEs.

It’s important to know if you don’t have GCSEs in English and Maths, you’ll certainly have to take those courses as part of your apprenticeship. 

In addition, a reading and numeracy test may be needed before you start your apprenticeship.
