Kickstart your career - you can go far with an apprenticeship

Did you know that you can gain industry-specific skills and qualifications - and earn a wage?

Apprenticeships offer a direct route into employment and future career success. And because you learn on the job, you will develop the skills and attributes that employers need.

Our apprenticeships are run by Activate Apprenticeships, who work with over 1,000 businesses in the UK.

Apprenticeships typically last 1-2 years. They offer you a clear progression route: from Intermediate (Level 2), all the way to higher apprenticeships (degree-level equivalent.)

Apprentices are employed and paid by the company they work for. Many spend one or two days a week at college learning extra skills, including English, maths and IT. Some apprenticeships are delivered entirely in the workplace.

We offer apprenticeships in a number of sectors, including:

  • Automotive (including motor sport and classic car restoration)
  • Business (including leadership)
  • Construction (including civil engineering)
  • Healthcare
  • Digital
  • Education (including early years)
  • Engineering (including cycle maintenance)
  • Furniture
  • Hair
  • Hospitality
  • Logistics
  • Sport
