Apprentices

The perfect platform to kick start your career in your chosen field, earning a wage as you gain first-hand work experience whilst you learn.

Applying for an Apprenticeship can be confusing, to make it easier for you, we have broken it down into the possible routes below:


Apply direct to the College 

There are three ways to apply for one of our Apprenticeships:


  1. online,
  2. use the college application form or,
  3. via your schools UCAS Progress.

You will go through the same assessment/interview process as our full-time students. If the Learning Assessment Officer thinks that you are suitable for an Apprenticeship, they will make you a ‘conditional’ offer.

A ‘conditional’ offer means that you will need to meet the entry criteria for the course outlined in the prospectus, plus you will be required to find suitable employment before your course starts. You can’t start an Apprenticeship without an employer.


Apply direct to an Employer 

Some companies advertise their own vacancies, so it is useful to keep an eye on the local press and talk to your career advisers. You will apply directly to the company and go through their interview process. This will still include an interview with a college Learning Assessment Officer to check you can complete the course.

The College has strong links with successful, local employers across varying industries who support and actively hire apprentices. Once you have received your offer, our Learning Assessment Officers will work with you to secure suitable employment.

They will help you create a strong CV which we’ll forward to potential employers and although we strongly encourage you to look for roles yourself, we will keep you up to date with current vacancies and support you to arrange and prepare for interviews.

Although we’re always here to help, it’s important that you develop your own skills. A good CV is key to helping you get an interview, now and in the future.
