Is an Apprenticeship Classed as a Job

An apprenticeship is an actual job training programme, and an apprenticeship is classed as a job. It helps you earn a living while studying and being highly skilled in your chosen trade at the end of the programme.

Apprenticeships are open to people above the age of 16, enabling them to succeed in their careers and improve their qualifications. Individuals must satisfy the entry criteria for the apprenticeship programme they pursue.

Apprenticeships for people over 25 are becoming increasingly common, and it might be the perfect way for you to change professions. Education is available in several industries, including aerospace, finance, and clothing, and can take one to five years to complete depending on age and qualifications. It combines practical “on-the-job” training with study, so an apprenticeship is classed as a job but many people and companies.
