    Introducing Apprenticeships

    An Apprenticeship is a real job with training so you can earn while you learn and pick up some nationally recognised qualifications as you go. Apprenticeships take between one and three years to complete, depending on your chosen subject.

    An Apprenticeship is essentially a set of qualifications called a ‘framework’ developed by Sector Skills Councils. Most Apprenticeship frameworks follow a standard format which consists of a national vocational qualification, knowledge based qualification and transferable skills. PGL provides the knowledge training and develops skills whilst the employer provides the practical experience to put those skills to the test. Training can be classroom based, in a workshop or in a workplace, depending on the subject.
