Apprenticeships

Go straight into the world of work AND gain a qualification. Start an apprenticeship!

With an apprenticeship, you learn on the job. You build up knowledge and skills, you gain a nationally-recognised qualification and you earn money – all at the same time.

We train apprentices all over the region. We have over 500 apprentices. We’ve seen that more and more industries and companies are training their staff through apprenticeships.

Why not become one of them? See our apprenticeships below.

What is an apprentice?

An apprentice is employed and paid by the company they work for. Many spend one or two days a week at the College learning extra skills, including English, maths and IT. Some apprenticeships are delivered entirely in the workplace.

Which apprenticeships can I do?

Business, care, computing, construction, engineering, furniture, hair and beauty, hospitality and catering, motor vehicle, retail, sport/sport services – we run apprenticeship training in all of these areas. 

What do I learn?

  • Theory – the technical aspects of your job
  • Competence – the practical aspects of your job
  • English and maths – the bedrock of any job or career

How do I start?

You need a job as an apprentice with an employer. Please review the the list of vacancies to show you which companies are currently recruiting.

How can I progress?

There is clear progression from intermediate (Level 2) to advanced (Level 3) to higher apprenticeships, which are degree-level equivalent qualifications.
