Learning on the job through an apprenticeship is the ideal way to develop skills, achieve nationally recognised qualifications and enhance future career prospects. Apprenticeships focus on high relevance employability skills and include the continued development of English and maths. Undertaking an Apprenticeship means paid employment from day one, working a minimum of 30 hours per week.


Our apprenticeship programme gives young people the opportunity to work for a real employer, earn a real salary and gain a real qualification whilst gaining valuable workplace skills and experience. Apprenticeships are nationally accredited programmes that involved a competency qualification, knowledge qualification and accredited support with English and Maths.

We work with local employers to link local job seekers to vacancies. For Employers, taking on an apprentice is a cost effective way of supporting an investment in the company’s future workforce. Anyone that’s living in England, over 16 years old and not in full-time education can apply to be an apprentice. Quality is key to Apprenticeships. All Apprenticeships must be at least 12 months long and lead to a national qualification that is respected by employers around the world.
