- The Benefits @ National Apprenticeship Service
Excerpt: Apprentices learn on the job, building up knowledge and skills, gaining qualiﬁcations and earning money all at the same time. You work towards a work-based qualiﬁcation such as a National Vocational Qualiﬁcation (NVQ) and other nationally recognised qualiﬁcations. Employers all over the country recognise and value Apprenticeships as they show that you’ve been trained in the skills they need.
