5 Reasons you should become an apprentice

Apprenticeships – one of the most misunderstood routes available to young people.  A route that can open so many doors for people from all walks of life.  Here are just a few of the reasons that we believe you should apply for an apprenticeship today:

  • You get paid.

That’s right.  You get a salary for completing a qualification which at college, or anywhere else, you would have to do for free. There is a stigma that apprentices are underpaid, but at Basingstoke ITEC, we ensure that all learners are offered a fair salary from their employer.

  • You get a qualification.

We offer a great range of qualifications, each of which will hugely expand your skill set and knowledge.

  • You can go up to degree level – with no student debt or costs.

Did you know that you can go to university, and get paid for it?  Apprenticeships are now available up to degree level, where you will attend University one day a week, whilst completing your apprenticeship.  Enjoy the student life, earn money, get a qualification, and get on the job experience – what more could you want?

  • Get 1-1 support.

Jumping into a full-time job can be pretty scary, but with an ITEC apprenticeship you are assigned a trainer who will be there whenever you need guidance or support.

  • On-the-job experience.

A lot of people leave college and university keen to look for a full time job, but a lot of employers ask for prior experience.  In addition to a great qualification, you will have that all important on-the-job experience that is highly sought for in the working world.

These are just 5 of our top reasons for becoming an apprentice. So what are you waiting for?  Head on over to our vacancies page and submit your application. We can also up skill existing members of staff if you are already with an employer.
