Apprenticeships

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

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.
