Apprenticeships

An Apprenticeship is a chance for you to move into a career, earn money and get the qualifications you need.


Apprenticeships offer a unique way of achieving your work and academic goals by combining on the job training as you gain important qualifications in the classroom, all of which will enhance your career prospects in your field of choice.

Apprenticeships will include Technical Certificates to build your basic technical skills, usually delivered on a part-time or evening basis at college. You will also study for NVQs (National Vocational Qualifications) by assessment of skills and competencies needed to do a particular job in your work place.

How does it work?

You can apply for an Apprenticeship while you are still at school taking your GCSEs, if you have left school and are looking for employment or if you are already employed. To commence your apprenticeship you must have found employment within the vocational area in which you wish to train.

Most of your training is carried out at your place of work through an Individual Learning Plan. This is designed to provide you with the support, supervision and work-based mentoring you will need. An assessor will work alongside you and your employer to monitor your progress against nationally recognised qualifications within your vocational area.

This ensures that while your needs – and those of your employer – are being met at a local level, the qualifications you gain meet the highest national standards.
