Apprenticeship Programmes


In NI apprenticeships are described as a job offering a minimum of 21 contracted hours. This is combined with a structured period of on and off-the-job training which will lead to a qualification which is both industry approved and nationally recognised. In NI there are currently 170 approved apprenticeship frameworks (2017).

Apprenticeships are available at Level 2 (GCSE or equivalent) or more advanced Level 3 (A Level or equivalent). They usually take between 2 and 4 years to complete; the time taken will depend on the apprenticeship offered.
