How does it work?

Apprenticeships can last from 1 to 5 years, depending on the type of programme and educational level. Apprenticeships are available at different equivalent education levels, right through to a Masters. As a Phastar apprentice, you will spend at least 20% of your working hours a week pursuing off-the-job learning. This is typically online learning, which may involve lectures, workshops, being mentored or practical skills training.

Over the duration of your apprenticeship, you will complete a structured development programme. At Phastar, we will support and mentor you along the way.

All programmes are fully funded by Phastar at no cost to you. As an apprentice, you will receive a competitive salary and the same staff benefits as all Phastar employees. You will also enjoy further discounts through schemes such as the NUS apprentice extra and TfL’s Apprentice Oyster card.
