As an apprentice you will be working for an employer, learning from your colleagues. The employer pays your wages.
As part of your Apprenticeship you will gain nationally recognised vocational qualifications like a QCF Certificate or Diploma (these have replaced NVQs). Care Training East Midlands (CTEM) looks after your training.
