You may be interested in starting an apprenticeship but wonder what happens after you complete your qualification. There are countless opportunities to explore; and an apprenticeship can open so many doors for you!
Many people believe you can only obtain a higher paid job by going down the University route. Sometimes this can be true, but apprenticeships give you the one thing that universities can’t; hands on industry experience. There are many advantages to completing an apprenticeship, with more routes and opportunities than ever before. But where can your apprenticeship lead after you finish?
Progress to a full time role with the company.
87% of employers keep their apprentices on in a full time position after completion of their apprenticeship. After 12-18 months of working for the company, you will have built a rapport with your employer and learnt your job role inside out. At the end of your Apprenticeship, you should have a clear understanding of how the company works and become a valuable member of the team.
Your employer will have invested a lot of their time over the course of your apprenticeship. So the idea of not wanting you in the business is not just a waste of their time, but yours too. They have taught you everything about the business, helped build your skills and become a valuable part of the team. This means you should be able to hit the ground running in future positions or promotions.
Complete a higher apprenticeship qualification.
After you have completed your current apprenticeship qualification, you may have the option to progress onto a higher qualification in your chosen sector. The company you work for may even want you to gain further skills in your sector. This gives you the chance to learn more about your area and looks fantastic on your CV! It also gives the impression to your current or future employers that you are committed to enriching your knowledge.
Depending of the qualification you complete, there are plenty of routes that you can take. For example, someone who completes a business administration apprenticeship may end up completing a sales or business management apprenticeship.
Overall, there are 6 Apprenticeship levels. They are:
- 2 – GCSE equivalent
- 3 – A-Level equivalent
- 4 & 5 – Foundation equivalent or above
- 6 & 7 – Degree equivalent
Complete your qualification and starting something new.
All our work based qualifications give you the necessary skills to gain a job in your chosen sector. This means you have the option to get your qualification and transfer it to another company and start something new. If you complete an advanced level 3 apprenticeship in Business Administration, this qualification is so versatile and teaches you vital skills you can apply to any business.
If you decide to do an apprenticeship in areas such as IT or Digital Marketing, they are more niche with the skills more suited for that sector. But they can still take you down a range of paths and show you where can be in the future.
