Apprenticeships: what you need to know

Information for schools and school staff.

We're starting to hear a lot about apprenticeships in education, but it isn't always clear what's actually involved:

  • Who can do an apprenticeship?
  • How much does it cost?
  • What are a school's obligations?
  • Who pays?

To help answer your questions, we've created two new pages on our website: information for schools, and information for potential apprentices.

Find out about funding, the teacher apprenticeship programme, and why your school should consider apprenticeships here.

Find out what an apprenticeship looks like day to day, who pays, and what's on offer for in-school colleagues here.

Don't forget to check out all our information on teacher training, here.
