What is Pathway to Apprenticeship?

Pathways to Apprenticeship is a new initiative offering a range of programmes that you can take in advance of an apprenticeship. These programmes offer essential skills designed to help you access and transition to a full apprenticeship. Similar in structure, pathways to apprenticeship are delivered in a blended combination of on-the-job employer-based training and off-the-job training in a College of Further Education and Training.
