A rewarding career is based on more than just qualifications. Whether you've got A-levels or GCSEs under your belt, why not see if Nationwide can help kick start your career?

What are Apprenticeships?

If you're 16 or over and you're looking for paid on-the-job learning, an Apprenticeship could be for you. Apprenticeships are work based training programmes combining paid training with nationally recognised qualifications.

If you don't want to go to university, an Apprenticeship is a direct and affordable route into a skilled job and career, you'll have the opportunity to earn whilst you learn.

What do we do differently?

You can expect some things you might not typically get at other organisations. With Nationwide you’ll be part of a network of people - other Apprentices, but also Graduates and Industrial Placements Students. You’ll have a wide variety of people to consult and collaborate with, giving you the perfect opportunity to build your skill set. Even more, we’ll provide additional soft skills learning in a number of areas such as Influencing, Presentation Skills, Self Awareness and Communication. With a dedicated Emerging Talent Team focused on watching out for your best interests, you’ll be well supported.

What Apprenticeships do we offer?

We offer 4 types of Apprenticeships and each typically takes between one and five years to complete depending on the level.

 Apprenticeships  Level  Equivalent education level
 Intermediate  2  5 GCSE passes at grade A* to C
 Advanced  3  2 A level passes
 Higher  4 and 5  Foundation degree
 Degree 6  Degree

We’ve recruited over 100 Apprentices across the UK in a variety of business areas including Retail, HR, Contact Centres, Digital & Change, Finance and Marketing & Engagement.

“ What I like about the apprenticeship programme is that the progression is as fast (or slow!) as I want it to be. I’m not being held to the standards of the person next to me, which gives me a lot more independence. ”

Stephen, Technical Practice Apprentice
