Apprenticeships at Runshaw...

Apprenticeships are an excellent way of gaining qualifications and workplace experience.                                                                                                                

Apprentices work towards a nationally recognised qualification, whilst being employed and working alongside experienced staff to gain job-specific skills. Anyone living in England, aged over 16 and not in full-time education may apply to become an Apprentice.  If you are already employed and not benefitting from training to support your employment, you can also apply to become an Apprentice.

24+ Advanced Learning Loan

Aged 24 or over and thinking about studying an Advanced or Higher Apprenticeship?

If you're starting an Advanced or Higher Apprenticeship on or after 1 August 2013 you may qualify for a 24+ Advanced Learning Loan to help you pay your course fees. Most learners aged 24 and over will qualify for these new loans from the UK government.*

- You won't have to pay any course fees upfront.
- There is no credit check and household income isn't taken into account.
- There is no upper age limit.
- Loan repayments are linked to what you earn when you have finished your course,
  not how much you borrowed.
- You only start paying back your loan when you have finished your course, and are
  earning more than £21,000 a year (which is £404 a week and £1750 a month).
- Loan repayments will be taken directly from your wage from April 2016.
- Interest rates are low.
- After 30 years any remaining loan debt is wiped!

*You must have been living in the UK for 3 years before starting your course and be a UK national or have 'settled status'.
