Apprenticeships

An apprenticeship is a programme that allows you to earn while you learn.  You will work for a local company whilst gaining a recognised qualification in college.  What’s even better, your employer will pay you a wage and support your learning.

 

Can I become an apprentice?

You can apply for an apprenticeship while you are still at school but to start one, you must be:

 

  • Over 16 (no age limit)

  • Living in England

  • Not in full-time education

  • Have secured work or a promise of employment

Can't find an employer?

If you are unable to find an employer willing to take you on to an apprenticeship, you always need a backup plan.

This sometimes means enrolling on to a full-time course until an apprenticeship opportunity becomes available.
