What is an apprenticeship?
An apprenticeship is a paid job with training.
All our apprentices are fully employed by us, enjoying the same rewards and benefits as all of our employees.
Working as an apprentice means they earn as they learn. An apprentice works in a real job and spends 20% of their working hours training.
They will undertake a work-based learning programme lasting up to 66 months (including the 6 month End Point Assessment Period) aiming towards a Laboratory Scientist (Degree) qualification.
