BESA apprenticeships

What is an apprenticeship?

An apprenticeship is a great opportunity to earn whilst you learn. As an apprentice, you’ll: 

  • be employed, earn a wage, and get holiday pay
  • work alongside experienced staff and gain job-specific skills
  • get time for training and study related to your role
  • complete a nationally recognised programme

There are over 800 different apprenticeships ranging from Level 2 to Level 7, covering a range of job roles and sectors and take between 1 – 6 years to complete. You can search for apprenticeships on the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education website. 

The Bedfordshire Employment and Skills Academy delivers apprenticeships in 3 key areas:

  • Business Administration (Level 3)
  • Early Years (Levels 2 and 3)
  • Teaching Assistant (Level 3)
