Information for Learners Apprenticeships – a proven way to a sustainable and rewarding career

Pearson in Practice changes lives, businesses and economies by providing worldleading, industry-specific training, qualifications and skill development.

The course is difficult, but anyone prepared to go the extra mile will do well. It’s very intensive learning, and it is a good place to learn. Apprentices are encouraged to behave like professionals and given the respect they deserve, it’s not like learning at school or college.

Why an Apprenticeship?
Don’t fancy going to university? Would you rather be in work, earning money while picking up skills and qualifications? Then you should perhaps consider an Apprenticeship. An Apprenticeship is a real job for a real employer, and they are available in nearly any industry you can think of. An apprentice learns on-the-job, undertaking qualifications while gaining essential work experience – earning while learning. Our Apprenticeships have been designed with the help of industry experts and our own experienced tutors to deliver learner-focused training that can lead to a rewarding and sustainable career. Apprenticeships are usually delivered part on-the-job and part off-the-job at a location suitable to you, or through distance and e-learning. Apprenticeships are open to anyone over age 16 living in England and not taking part in full-time education.
