Apprenticeships and traineeships combine work-based training with an employer and formal training from a training provider. They are established under training contracts between the employer and the apprentice or trainee and are regulated by the Government. They’re a great way to be paid for work, learn and earn a qualification. Find out more.

This means you will be employed by Novaskill but hosted by a partner employer for the duration of your apprenticeship/traineeship.
