Introduction to Modern Apprenticeships
Modern Apprenticeships are nationally designed training programmes for 16-24 year-olds who have left full-time education or are already in employment.

They offer young people the opportunity to start their career through a combination of learning options and work experience.

There are two levels of Modern Apprenticeship: Foundation Modern Apprenticeships (FMA's) and Advanced Modern Apprenticeships (AMA's).

There are over 60 FMA's and 80 AMA's to choose from. FMA's last at least 12 months, while AMA's at least 2 years. Young people wishing to become Modern Apprentices will need to show that they have the ability to complete the programme.

Modern Apprentices either have a job placement with an organisation or they are in full-time employment. They receive a training allowance or guaranteed basic wage. On-the-job training is provided by the employer. Off-the-job training is provided by a learning provider, who also manages all of the paperwork and visits the apprentice at work at regular intervals to assess their progress.

Financial assistance towards the cost of training and assessment is available from the Learning and Skills Council (LSC) in England, Education and Learning Wales (ELWA) in Wales or Local Enterprise Company (LEC) in Scotland.
