What is an Apprenticeship?

It’s a real job, with hands-on experience, a salary and the chance to train while you work. You’re treated just like all the other employees, with a contract of employment and holiday leave. 

When you’re an apprentice:

  • you earn and learn at the same time.
  • you train to be fully competent in your chosen occupation.
  • you’re on a career path – with lots of future potential for you.

Your apprenticeship can take between 9-12 months, depending on which apprenticeship you choose, what level it’s at, and your previous experience. 

Different apprenticeships are available all over Nigeria, at companies large and small, in a wide range of industries and organisations. From local organisations to large national brands.You get valuable hands-on experience working while you learn, which helps you progress in your working life.

Given you receive a regular salary; funded by contributions from the Change Nigeria Project charity and your employer, apprenticeships are a great option for getting on the job ladder and supercharging your career.

HOW MUCH CAN YOU EARN?

Your salary will depend upon the industry, location and type of apprenticeship you choose. The national minimum wage is ₦30,000 – but we encourage our employers to pay far more than this.

WHAT WILL MY APPRENTICESHIP COST ME?

When you become an apprentice, you’ll need to cover the cost of your day-to-day expenses, such as lunch and travel.
