Apprenticeships are designed for people who know what they want to do and can't wait to get into the work place. They allow people to gain real skills whilst working and being paid a wage.
The training is very much a partnership between the College, student and the employer, with technical certificates studied at college, and the assessment of practical skills taking place in the workplace.
Apprenticeships bring considerable value to organisations, employers, individuals and the economy. Businesses across the country are now increasingly realising the enormous benefits that apprenticeships create, not only in terms of a highly skilled workforce but also by boosting productivity and staff retention.
88% of employers who employ apprentices believe that apprenticeships lead to a more motivated and satisfied workforce.
