Congrats—the big day is here!

Now that the results are in, there’s lots to think about (not to mention mum and dad asking constantly what you’re doing in September).

Feeling overwhelmed by career decision stress? Not to worry—we’ll help you get your #FutureSorted. Here’s the top 5 reasons to consider an apprenticeship as your next career step!

  1. Get paid to learn

If you’re dreaming of a great career but the prospect of £50,800 of average uni debt sounds scary, we have good news. As an apprentice, you’ll earn a salary and pass the finish line totally debt-free—armed with in-demand skills and a foot in the door at the likes of companies like ASOS, BBC, Vodafone or O2.

  1. Launch into exciting career prospects

Tech is the fastest-growing industry in the world, and career prospects are skyrocketing. You could work anywhere—from an edgy startup to a multinational company—in exciting roles like software developer, digital marketer or IT support technician. 92% of our apprentices complete their programmes with a job already waiting. And with average tech industry salaries at £40k, there’s never been a better time to join the industry.

  1. Learn in an ultra-modern blended format

At QA, we deliver our apprenticeship programmes through a blended approach to help you get the most out of your learning. You’ll learn in the classroom, online and on the job—actively applying what you’ve learned through real work projects for your employer and building an impressive portfolio to show off your skills.

  1. Find a programme that’s perfect for you

 At QA, we’re a welcoming place for techies and non-techies alike. We offer a wide range of tech apprenticeships—from IT Technician to Software Developer to Cyber Defender. But businesses aren’t built on technology alone, so our Digital Marketer, Project Manager and Business Administrator programmes will get you trained up in other super-in-demand skills.

  1. Take your learning as far as you want

An apprenticeship doesn’t mean giving up your education. With QA, you can take your learning as far as you want: to a real university degree (England and Wales) or nationally-recognized qualification (Scotland). There’s also lots of career progression opportunities—if you finish your programme and are keen to keep going, you can jump up to the next apprenticeship level.
