Apprenticeships combine practical training in a job with study. Apprenticeships are recognised as the leading standard for work-based training and there are lots of benefits for doing an apprenticeship or employing one.

We currently offer an Apprenticeship Vacancy Matching service, to help match the perfect candidate with the right opportunity. Our Apprenticeship Team can work with candidates and employers to ensure the Apprenticeship journey is a success for all. Apprenticeships are available for all age groups above 16 year-olds.

I love the freedom I’ve been given in my office environment to work and develop. When I first started, I was given my own set of suppliers to manage and deal with. Since then, I’ve been able to confidently contact them and sort out payments, queries etc. I also enjoy how everything I learn in college reflects my role in the office, helping me to further develop my skills.
