What are apprenticeships?

Apprenticeships are work-based training programmes designed around the needs of employers, which lead to nationally recognised qualifications.

Apprentices are employed from the word go and receive a wage and support from a company that is committed to their development. Our training programmes can be delivered both in the workplace and at college.

How do I apply?

Apprenticeship applications run very differently to all other college course applications, as you must have an employer placement in place before we can enrol you. There are two main ways to secure an apprenticeship placement..

The first option is to find an employer yourself. Many of our apprentices come to us after finding a local employer who wants to employ them as an apprentice. If you do this, simply let us know the details and we will contact the employer and take over from there to get you enrolled onto your apprenticeship as quickly as possible.

Alternatively, we may be able to find a role for you through our recruitment matching service. We have a number of apprenticeship vacancies available on our website that you can apply to at any time. Simply follow the links, read the descriptions and complete the online application forms.

Already working?

Alternatively, if you are already working and your current employer is willing to support your learning through an Apprenticeship.

Your employer will need to call the number or contact us via the link below, to discuss the development of an Apprenticeship for you and complete the necessary paperwork.

Need some support?

If you are unsure about how to write a job application we have a recruitment team on hand who can guide you through the process. They can help with application and CV writing, interview techniques, ways to build your confidence and much more.

If you think an apprenticeship might be for you but you’re unsure of which pathway is right for you and just want some more information, then please call our friendly team for an informal discussion. We’d love to hear from you!
