What are apprenticeships?

"A lot of people think university is the only way you’ll get a job, but apprenticeships give you opportunities you might never have had"- Daniel, apprentice

Apprenticeships are a combination of a full-time job with training. This training counts as a formal qualification, which is equivalent to GCSEs, A-levels or degrees depending on the level you choose – ranging from intermediate to higher apprenticeships, even including degree apprenticeships too.

As well as the qualification, you’ll earn a wage during your apprenticeship, which is why this is a popular alternative to college or university.

How do apprenticeships work?

An apprentice’s working time is usually split 80/20. 80% of their time will be spent working and carrying out their day-to-day responsibilities. 20% of their time will be ‘off-the-job’ and spent working towards their apprenticeship qualification. To ensure this balance is met, at Arch we have a 20% off-the-job tracker that the apprentice, their Learning & Development Coach and line manager monitor.

Arch are an 'outstanding' provider as measured by Ofsted, putting us in an elite top percentile of education providers across the UK. 

Omnicom Media Group UK is part of one of the Big Four advertising agency groups in the world. Since 2017, they’ve invested in apprenticeships as one of their key strategies to recruit new talent and up-skill their workforce. 

“We launched our Academy to attract a diverse
group of bright and enthusiastic people to work
across the Group. [...]  I am thrilled
that our Apprentices have performed so well”
