How it all started...
Founded in 2014 by Darryn Lewis, a Talent Acquisition professional who understands the need to skillUp the younger generations, was toying with the idea of creating a go to resource for budding apprentices to find the information they need to make a decision on whether an apprenticeship was right for them.
2016 Website Launch: Our first version anyway, unfortunately we don't have any screenshots to show you - however we confirm it was pretty basic and didn't have all the lovely featured we have today.
Over the next few years we made plenty of changes keeping up with demand from 1,000 users a month to over 70,000. God knows how many times we changed the design, but it was needed, to help our visitors easily navigate the resources we have available from advertising apprenticeships to quickly and easily finding an apprenticeship.
As the leading online resource for apprenticeships in the UK we have put together a number of handy guides for popular apprenticeships as well as giving you access to the largest number of published apprenticeships in the UK. Our guides help you decide whether the industry and available qualifications fit with your needs and future career prospects.
If you are looking for apprenticeships in London, Birmingham or Leeds we have it covered as well as every other location across the UK.
We've put together a small selection of our guides below to help you get started. You can also visit our apprentice

Apprenticeships have come a long way since the 12th century and we now have a new dawn "modern apprenticeships" what exactly this means we have no idea, but what we can tell you is apprenticeships are the only form of learning that pays you a wage whilst studying towards a nationally recognised qualification.
So why should you become an apprentice? Check out our extensive guide on why become an apprentice.
An apprenticeship is a form of further education which offers on the job training for you to gain a nationally recognised qualification whilst studying part-time with an apprenticeship training provider, college or university through workshops or classroom training.
Apprenticeship training has to be delivered by a registered apprenticeship training provider which can also be an employer-provider, where the employer you are training through are on the register of training providers to be able to deliver their own training requirements. If an employer acts as an employer-provider they will usually employ a number of people such as Apprenticeship Assessors, Mentors and Managers to support you through your apprenticeship programme.
During your apprenticeship you will receive a salary and all the other benefits permanent employees receive. An apprenticeship job is only for a specified time as stipulated at the beginning of your apprenticeship training which can last anything from 12 months to 5 years.

Why should you start an apprenticeship?
If you are considering your post 16 options you probably wouldn't have considered an apprenticeship a few years ago and would be struggling or worrying what to do when you leave school. It is a legal requirement for you to now stay in some form of further education until the age of 18 and you now have three options A-Levels, College or an Apprenticeship.
You can start an apprenticeship at the age of 16 through the Intermediate or Advanced level apprenticeship programmes across many industry sectors from Construction, Technology or even Marketing. There are no entry requirements for the intermediate apprenticeship, however you will need at least 5 GCSE's at grade 4 (previously C grade) or above to qualify for the advanced apprenticeship. On completion of the intermediate you will gain the qualifying criteria for a level 3.
The best reason for starting an apprenticeship is on completion of each level you will receive a nationally recognised qualification from an NVQ all the way up to a degree level apprenticeship such as a Bachelors or Masters.
