Apprenticeships Explained

Earn while you learn as an apprentice

Apprenticeships give you an opportunity to learn and gain a recognised qualification whilst you work. All apprenticeships are paid and you will be expected to work for a minimum of 30 hours a week, which includes the time you spend at college. You will spend most of your time within your workplace and the rest of your training will be provided by the College normally on a one day a week basis, although variations can apply according to the programme. There is no upper age limit to become an apprentice but you need to be at least 16

To become an apprentice you will need to apply for an apprenticeship job vacancy or speak to a business and have them take you on as an apprentice. We can support you through this process helping you with CV writing, interview tips and speaking to the business about the benefits of employing an apprentice. 

Register with our Apprenticeship Recruitment Service and we’ll send you the latest vacancies that suit your profile, when they become available. Call 0330 123 4785 or email
