How much do you know about apprenticeships?

Apprenticeships are a great opportunity to gain practical skills in the workplace while studying and can lead to a wide range of careers in geography. However, students are often less aware of the opportunities presented by apprenticeships than studying at university.

Working with Not Going to Uni, we’ve developed some new geography apprenticeship resources for student geographers around apprenticeships to answer common questions like:

  • What is an apprenticeship?

  • What are the different types of apprenticeship?

  • How long do apprenticeships last?

  • Who can apply for an apprenticeship?

  • How do you choose an apprenticeship?

  • How do you apply for an apprenticeship?

  • How can I use geography in an apprenticeship?

  • Why might you consider undertaking an apprenticeship instead of going to university?

There are many benefits of apprenticeships – on-the-job training, dedicated study time to work towards a qualification, receiving a salary, and working as part of a team, to name a few – with some people choosing to undertake an apprenticeship instead of going to university.
