An apprenticeship means doing a real job with quality training whilst gaining a qualification in the workplace. You'll earn a salary while you learn and be given allocated study time.

The features of an apprenticeship are:

  1. You'll be studying a nationally recognised qualification;
  2. You will receive a minimum of 12 months training, dependent on the qualification. This could be up to four years for a higher level qualification;
  3. You will be working typically at least 30 hours per week;
  4. There will be a mix of on the job training and classroom learning, dependent on the qualification; and
  5. Around 20 per cent of your working hours will be spent on study towards your qualification.

Our diverse and vast range of services bring great opportunities in different fields. There are also clear career pathways available and we are committed to supporting the personal development of our staff.

We would love you to be part of our future workforce and would do our best to make the apprenticeship journey the very best experience it can be for you.
