Find out about apprenticeships for young people looking to become an apprentice, current employers who wish to learn new skills, or employers who wish to recruit an apprentice to enhance their workforce.


Apprenticeships come in three levels and last for a minimum of a year. As an apprentice you’ll be paid a wage, gain nationally-recognised qualifications and get work experience with a reputable employer.

If you’re a UK resident over 16 and not in full-time education, you’re eligible to apply for an apprenticeship.

As an apprentice you’ll learn on-the-job with an employer, and may come to college on day-release to study.

Whether you’re already employed or looking for a job, an apprenticeship can help boost your qualifications and industry experience. You can choose to study an apprenticeship in almost any sector to suit your personal career goals.

Already employed?

If you already hold a position within a company and you've been selected for an apprenticeship by your employer or even approached them yourself; you'll study one of our apprenticeship courses..

The course you study will depend on your current role within your workplace, and what your employer requires of you.
