What are the benefits of an apprenticeship after your exams?

At Babington, we believe that apprenticeships are an excellent solution for those who are looking to gain earn money while developing their skills straight from school or college. Here are some reasons why an apprenticeship could suit you:


Earn while you learn

Apprentices will have the same opportunities as employees, earning a weekly wage and working alongside experienced staff.

The minimum apprenticeship wage is £3.70 per hour, but many apprentices earn significantly more. However, the average weekly wage for an apprentice is now around £170. This may seem low to start with but bear in mind that you aren’t yet fully qualified, and as your experience grows, so will your pay. Research also shows that an apprentice can earn almost £50,000 more than graduates over their lifetime.

As an apprentice, you will also receive the same benefits as other employees, such as pension contributions and leisure facilities.


Real-world experience with top employers

Apprenticeships are designed with the help of employers so you will have the skills necessary to be successful in the industry.

You will learn from experienced professionals on the job, and will also add to your skills by completing your qualification, either through our digital platform BabingtonOnline or by visits from a tutor.

You will also be set targets to ensure that you are well supported and that you are progressing at an appropriate speed.


Gain a nationally recognised qualification

Along with comprehensive training, you will also gain a work-based qualification

Apprenticeships are available in 1500 job roles across more than 170 industries, so there is plenty of flexibility when it comes to the qualifications you can gain.

There are three levels of apprenticeships: Intermediate Apprenticeships (Level 2), Advanced Apprenticeships (Level 3), and Higher Apprenticeships (Level 4 and above).


Fast track your career

You don’t have to stop at an Intermediate Apprenticeship, at Babington we offer several Higher Level apprenticeships.

Depending on your career path, we can support you up to Level 5 in Leadership and Management and Level 7 in Accounting. If you impress during your apprenticeship, you could also gain a full-time position with the company. To have a foot in the industry at such an early stage in your career is massively beneficial, and could give you the basis to work all the way up to a Managing Director position in the future.
