What is a Pre-Apprenticeship Programme?
Put simply, a pre-apprenticeship course is a stepping-stone to get into the industry of your choice. In most cases, people undergo a pre-apprenticeship before an apprenticeship to prepare them for the working environment in their selected industry. As well as this, pre-apprenticeships can help to improve your existing skills and pave the way for your learning as a part of your further studies.
Why should I do a pre-apprenticeship?
One major advantage of conducting a pre-apprenticeship is that you are effectively completing the first stage of apprenticeship study. Not only will this shave time off your secondary study, but it will also give you a head start on the industry, granting you a competitive edge when it comes to finding employment. When applying for apprenticeships, employers also like the fact that they do not have to pay your wages to study what you have already learned. This will mean less time in the classroom and more time for them to give you practical tasks that will actually contribute to the business operations.
Another advantage is that employers will know you have experienced the industry culture prior to taking on the commitment of an apprenticeship. Not only does this cement your loyalty to the field you are undertaking, but it also proves your ability to handle yourself on site and passion towards completing your apprenticeship to become accredited in your trade.
