Information for parents

As a parent you will want to help your child make the right decision about their future and give them the best possible start in their career.

If your child is considering their next steps, whether that is to continue in education or to find employment, there is no reason why they cannot do both with an Apprenticeship! 

Apprenticeships can offer your child a wealth of different qualifications and training. Many programmes offer the equivalent to foundation degrees and degrees as part of the programme, so young people can get the same qualification as their university peers while working, earning and applying the skills learned.

Did you know...

  • More than 850,000 young people are currently earning and learning on an Apprenticeship
  • 90% of Apprentices stay in employment after finishing their Apprenticeship
  • The average Apprenticeship wage is £25,000


Check out our Parents' Guide to Apprenticeships for more information about what an Apprenticeship entails, the qualifications on offer, and the care, support and guidance available for your child.

"ACT is a very good training company, giving Ethan a very good opportunity to achieve a lifelong career. ACT is a far better experience for Ethan than college. I was always slightly worries about him at school being one of the youngest pupils, but ACT has helped Ethan to far exceed what he achieved at school. He has matured into a fine young man. He has gained qualifications, confidence and experience and a career thanks to ACT." 

Colin Robinson, Ethan Robinson's Dad
