Apprenticeships are available for those aged 16-24. You are based with an employer while you study for qualifications through a training provider. You'll need to go to college one day a week. The entry requirements can vary, depending on the employer or training provider. For more information on apprenticeships, click here
Entry to Employment (e2e)
If you don't feel ready for work or training, e2e can be a good starting point - and you don't need any qualifications to join. It's a flexible programme so what you do may vary but it can include trying out different work activities and the chance to gain qualifications. Everyone on e2e is paid the full £30 Education Maintenance Allowance (EMA) plus bonuses - it does not depend on household income.
Time Off for Study or Training
If you go into work and have not already got qualifications to NVQ level 2 (5 GCSEs grades A-C or equivalent), you will be entitled to paid time off to study or train for a qualification up to Level 2.
