UK workers would embark on apprenticeship for career change

Around two-thirds of the UK workforce (62%) harbour hopes to change their career path, according to research by the global job search engine Jobrapido.

The research reveals more than half of UK employees (52%) also admitted they would readily embark on an apprenticeship if it could support a career change or move to a different industry sector.

However, almost two-thirds of those who wouldn’t embark on an apprenticeship believe they are too old, and also believe that the age limit for apprenticeships is between 16-24. A quarter of respondents felt that apprenticeships would be a step down given their career experience.

Jobrapido’s research was conducted in July 2019 among 1,444 employees who work across different industry sectors, such as sales, marketing, engineering, transportation, construction and technology.
