An apprenticeship is a brilliant opportunity to mix work-based experience and classroom learning in our outstanding facilities.

Apprentices can split their time between the College’s modern campus and place of employment. You will have the opportunity to learn in new ways using specialist facilities including a mock ambulance, life-sized aeroplane cabin and fully operational salon.

Our campus also features a range of great social spaces, including a Costa Coffee, a state of the art gym and our glass-walled library offers a peaceful study space.

Or have you had enough of classrooms and prefer to learn online?

Our team are leading the way with exciting new ways to complete your apprenticeship. Through SMART ASSESSOR e-portfolios, apprentices are able to work flexibly around the needs of employers in the workplace.

Information for parents and carers

Is an apprenticeship right for your child?

An apprenticeship can be a great option for your child, whether they want a traditional or not-so-traditional role. Do they learn better by ‘doing’? Do they crave independence? Do they want to earn while they learn? If so, an apprenticeship could be the ideal career path for them.
