Apprenticeships allow individuals to gain job-specific skills and professional qualifications while working, along with a regular wage, paid holidays and benefits, and they’re available to people aged over 16, living in Wales and not in full-time education.
Almost all job sectors have apprenticeship programmes and the majority of apprenticeships can be made accessible for people with additional needs.
The Welsh Government’s ‘Inclusive Apprenticeships – Disability Action Plan’ aims to drive a culture change on the apprenticeship programme in Wales and remove barriers to participation for disabled people.
