Some of the Apprenticeships available in this sector will train you in specialised skills, such as hairdressing and beauty therapy. You'll be taught by experienced, professional staff at college one day each week and you'll spend the other four days putting those skills into practice in a real business.
Other retail and commercial enterprise Apprenticeships will allow you to pick up much more general skills and keep your future career options wide open. Your working environment could be anything from a cruise liner to a warehouse, and your may find that every day at work brings new challenges and opportunities. The skills and qualifications you'll gain will really help you to get on in your career - whether you go for a promotion within the same company, decide to change jobs or even look for more training.
