An apprenticeship is essentially a job with training. As an employee, you can gain essential skills whilst being paid. Combining onsite experience plus off-site learning, you’ll work alongside an employer who will give you tasks to perform with the skills you learn as you progress. Lasting for anything from one to four years, once you’ve completed your apprenticeship you’ll have gained valuable experience alongside a nationally recognised qualification. Think you’re too old for an apprenticeship? Apprenticeships are available for anyone at any age.

With over 100 different types of apprenticeships available, the first challenge is deciding which one to choose. If you’re unsure, join us at our Job Shop where our team can talk you through your options. If you know what you’d like to do, you can have a look through our extensive list of providers on our Find a Provider page or take a look at all the amazing apprenticeship opportunities currently available in and around Plymouth here

Apprenticeship travel and accommodation funding – ‘Travel to Train’

The CITB will fund 80% of accommodation costs for eligible apprentices if overnight stays in a hotel to attend a place of training are required.
Employers can all claim excess costs for apprentice travel where the cost exceeds £30 per week.

Accommodation funding and/or travel costs can only be claimed for apprentices employed by CITB registered, grant-eligible employers in England, Scotland and Wales.
