What are Apprenticeships?

We offer Apprenticeships starting at level 2, all the way up to degree-level Apprenticeships – see our full offer here

Apprentices earn whilst they learn, attending college and training on the job. They’ll learn in our industry-standard workshops and purpose-built facilities, gaining industry knowledge from expert tutors.

Apprentices are supported throughout their programme by college tutors and industry experienced skills coaches, many of whom started their careers as apprentices.

Anyone aged 16 or over can complete an apprenticeship as long as they don’t have a large amount of existing knowledge relevant to the course. There are different levels of apprenticeships to suit all skill sets and industries.

2) Will I be paid?

Yes! You will be paid at least National Apprenticeship Minimum wage, including for the time you spend at College.

3) How long does an apprenticeship last?

Apprenticeships take different lengths of time to complete, depending on the sector. Programmes typically last between two and three years. Check out our full course listing for the duration of each apprenticeship.

4) Are there any entry requirements for becoming an apprentice?

Certain apprenticeships may have specific entry requirements, but these will all be listed in the vacancy.

5) What can I do after my apprenticeship?

Many apprentices remain in full time employment with the same employer after they’ve completed their apprenticeship. Other apprentices have gone on to start their own business and take on future apprentices.

We also offer progression paths for many of the apprenticeships. For example, on completion of our Carpentry and Joinery level 2, you can enrol on the Advanced Carpentry and Joinery Level 3 course to continue with your learning.
