Your career, your choice

Once your apprenticeship course has concluded, there are a number of routes that you can take. You can use the skills that you have developed to continue your career in the relevant area of the construction industry and it’s common place to then apply for a full-time, non-apprenticeship role, with the appropriate level of wage. This might be with the same company where you completed your apprenticeship or further afield.

Alternatively, you might choose to continue your education with the apprenticeship scheme and progress to the next level of apprenticeship, such as an Advanced Apprenticeship or a Higher or Degree Apprenticeship.
