Training and Apprenticeship Opportunities
As an apprentice you learn and earn at the same time. Our new Traineeship programme offers work experience as well as college-based vocational learning. We also offer a Skills for Life and Work course which paves the way for further training or employment.
Apprenticeships - Employed Pathway
An Apprenticeship is a 'job' from day one which includes a combination of on and off-the-job training.
An apprentice also receives ‘off-the-job’ training, usually on a day-release basis with a training provider, to work towards achieving vocational qualifications.More Info
