An apprenticeship is a paid job where you learn a specific set of skills relevant to the role. As a BT apprentice, you’ll be an essential part of our business. You’ll be doing a real role, taking on responsibility and learning new skills from day one. Working alongside experienced colleagues, you’ll gain a wealth of experience as well as job specific skills. We’ll pay you a salary whilst you’re working towards a nationally recognised apprenticeship.

Once you’ve completed your apprenticeship, we’ll give you a permanent job with us.

In a nutshell, the main benefit of an apprenticeship is that you earn as you learn.
