Why should I become an apprentice?

Studying full time isn’t right for everyone, so if college or university isn’t right for you an apprenticeship might be the solution. As an apprentice you will be doing a real job in a real workplace and you will get paid for it. You will have responsibilities for delivering council work or services and you’ll be part of a team.

What are the benefits of becoming an apprentice?

Apprenticeships combine practical training in a job with study where you’ll:

  • work alongside experienced staff
  • gain job-specific skills
  • earn a wage and get holiday pay
  • study towards a related qualification (usually one day a week)

The Academy delivers apprenticeship training in:

  • Adult Social Care
  • Business Administration
  • Customer Services
  • Early Years
  • Public Services Operational Delivery
  • Teaching Assistant
