There are two main ways to become an apprentice. You can either find a job and become an apprentice through your company/employer (usually for those who have already left school), or you can apply for a course online and we’ll help you find an apprenticeship (ideal for school leavers).
For both, you’ll have to fill in an application form. If you’d like to fill in a paper application form, you can request one by calling us on 01252 407299. Many of our apprenticeship programmes fill quickly, so please make sure you apply as soon as possible.
We will then invite you to an interview and assessment at the College, before visiting your employer to complete a health and safety and employment check.
Your apprenticeship will not be confirmed until we have: carried out employment checks; you have had a formal interview at the College; have successfully completed all assessments; and have met the entry criteria for your apprenticeship.
Remember: To be eligible for an apprenticeship, you need to be in full-time employment.
