Five Common Myths about Apprenticeships 

Apprenticeships are only for people who can’t get into university 

Apprenticeships are an alternative route to employment and are for anyone who enjoys hands on learning rather than going to university. So if you’re looking to save money, Apprenticeships could be a better option than university and a more secure way of entering the world of employment.

Apprenticeships are only available in blue collar industries such as construction 

This is not the case anymore. Apprenticeships are available in almost any industry you can think of, whether it’s for a small business or a corporate company.  You can do an Apprenticeship in anything from Law to Accountancy, IT to Creative & Media Studies. 

University is a better route into employment than Apprenticeships 

Not necessarily.  Doing an Apprenticeship puts you straight into a job that you are more likely to stay in once the scheme finishes. So, if you already have an idea about what you want to do as a career then doing an Apprenticeship will put you in the perfect position to develop your career within a company and gain an understanding of a working environment. Apprentices have job-specific skills that most graduates don’t, which places them in a better position when looking for employment. 

You won’t earn as much as a graduate if you do an apprenticeship 

Apprentices earn money from day one, even if it’s a reduced wage. By the time graduates are placed within a role, some apprentices could already be in a managerial position and would have had a significant increase in their wage. 

Apprenticeships are only for young people leaving secondary school 

No. You can start an Apprenticeship at any age, as long as you're aged 16 and have completed Year 11.  Apprenticeships start throughout the year and you can be an apprentice at any working age – even in your 30s and 40s. They're also available across different levels depending on what types of qualification you have.
