Apprenticeships are nationally-designed training programmes, tailored for full-time employees. They give you the opportunity to:

  • gain vocational, work-based qualifications (QCF, Technical Certificate and Functional skills including numeracy and literacy)
  • learn and enhance practical job skills and knowledge, related to specific work roles
  • progress within specific careers and educational pathways.

Apprenticeships normally last from 12 months - four years, depending on the type of programme.
