The National Apprenticeship Service supports the delivery of apprenticeships in England. It offers free impartial advice and support to employers looking to recruit and for individuals seeking apprenticeship opportunities.

Apprenticeships are a great way to progress in work and life and a great way for employers to improve the skills base of their business. They work for people of all ages and backgrounds and can transform lives.

The National Apprenticeship Service are rolling out many more Higher and Degree Apprenticeships, combining a high quality qualification with an apprenticeship. Higher and Degree Apprenticeships are widening access to many professions and providing the higher level technical skills employers need to improve productivity and give individuals an equally valid career route as going to university.

There are a huge variety of apprenticeships available across England offered by leading businesses of all sizes, including household names such as BBC, ASOS, ITV, Airbus and IBM.
