Apprenticeships for Adults
Apprenticeships aren't just for young people. Each year tens of thousands on adults gain the skills and qualifications they need to progress and increasing their earning power.
Acquiring new skills and qualifications is a great way to advance your career, but there are also financial benefits. For most people, a future with a larger income is in our hands if we invest time in learning. Based on statistics from the Labour Force Survey, investing some of your time and money in learning could increase your annual salary by up to £2,000 - £3,000.
So learning a new skill could increase your earnings by £10,000 to £15,000 on average over five years – and perhaps even more in the longer term.
