What is a Full Time Apprenticeship

A full-time apprenticeship is essentially a full-time job that includes research and studying.

You’re treated the same as every other paid employee, accruing holiday pay, but you’re also aiming for debt-free status.

Intend to work 30 hours a week with your employer, including one day of study at the workplace, university, school, or the internet.

Everything would be spelt out in the contract between you and your boss, and it is essential to remember that each apprenticeship is unique.

The general appeal for apprentices remains the same: the reward for delicately balancing your lifestyle around work and study is that your tuition expenses are covered by both your employer and the government.

So you join the workforce while already on a technical route, with nothing to repay.
