Apprenticeship benefits for the apprentice

The best of both worlds

An apprenticeship in internal audit is a real job with structured training which gives you the opportunity to work towards an IIA qualification. 

It helps you gain the skills and knowledge you need to succeed in internal audit. Getting into employment earlier means there’s lots of potential for you to progress in your career quickly. Plus, your employer picks up the cost of your training, so there is one less thing for you to worry about.


Hands-on training

An apprenticeship gives you fantastic experience in the working world and shows employers that you can ‘hit the ground running’. Hands-on training gives you a real chance to put your skills into practice and helps you to gain more confidence in a working environment.


Equal opportunities

As you are employed during your apprenticeship, you are entitled to a minimum wage and other statutory benefits (such as sick pay, holiday and maximum working hours) offered to employees. If an employer offers extra benefits to their employees (such as healthcare plans or childcare allowances), then they may also be offered to you too!

Here are four real-life apprentices discussing the benefits of doing an apprenticeship with Lloyds Banking Group.
