Earn and Learn
‘College managers have continued to work well with local businesses to ensure that the curriculum meets local skill requirements‘ (Official Ofsted Report, 2016).
An apprenticeship is just the job if you’re looking to learn a trade for work. From manual skills in trades like motor vehicle, engineering and construction — to hospitality, sport, hair and beauty, photography, performing arts or more — they get people of all age groups learning skills with an employer and earning a wage from day one. Does that work for you?
‘Apprentices understand clearly how their vocational knowledge and skills will help them to achieve their qualifications and gain employment in their chosen careers’ (Ofsted Report, 2016).
Funding your future
We believe everyone should have access to education, regardless of financial position. There are various options to help you on your way with an apprenticeship and ensure that you pick up the skills for work and not money worries.
Let's get to work
Our 400+ apprentices know that they’re employees, not students. They spend up to one full day week at college and the rest of the time working, learning and earning. It’s a good life if you want to combine study with practical training and develop skills for life.
‘Apprentices understand how to develop their practical skills and they make a good contribution to their employers’ workforces’ (Ofsted Report, 2016).
