Connexions Hub Services and local Connexions delivery teams work with employers across Tyne and Wear.

Apprenticeships and work-based learning

Apprenticeships and work-based learning opportunities are available to all age groups. People on Apprenticeships can undertake qualifications to help them do their job.


The qualifications required for any vacancy will vary from industry to industry and from job to job. There is no one formula for determining the qualification level for a particular post and there are a number of factors to bear in mind when setting the qualification requirements in any vacancy.

Employment rights

The law gives employees certain rights at work. These might be contractual rights agreed with their employer or statutory rights defined by Government legislation.

Work experience

Connexions Hub Services in Tyne and Wear organises work experience placements for local schools and colleges, offering around 12,000 placements a year.
