Apprenticeships typically take one to two years to complete depending on the level of the Apprenticeship, the apprentice’s ability and the industry sector. Our Apprenticeships are available in a wide range of occupational areas from Childcare and Hairdressing to Equine and Construction, and some are available at two levels - Intermediate Apprenticeship and Advanced Apprenticeship.
Apprenticeships are available to anyone over the age of 16, living in England and not in full time education. There are no formal requirements as Apprenticeships are not just based on previous academic achievement. However, apprentices need to be committed, motivated, enthusiastic and reliable. Applicants will be interviewed prior to starting on an Apprenticeship programme.
We are always happy to discuss the options available with either you or your son or daughter. If you would like more information please contact our Advice and Guidance Team onm 01483 44 85 85 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
