Apprenticeships are a great way for young people over the age of 16 to earn while they learn in a real job, gaining experience, qualifications and brighter prospects for the future. Four days are usually spent in the workplace, getting hands-on experience on the job, with one day here with us at the college. And it’s not just the apprentices that reap the rewards. By hiring an apprentice, employers get to nurture their own talent while developing a motivated, skilled and qualified workforce. With training at three different levels and almost 30 different career paths, what are you waiting for?

The Apprenticeship, Traineeship and Jobs Growth Wales Programmes, led by the Welsh Government, are supported by the European Social Fund.


The Skills for Industry project is part funded by the European Social Fund through the Welsh Government

These programmes are aimed at adult learners aged 18 or over who are looking to return to work after being unemployed and who are in receipt of DWP allowances. You’ll need to undertake a pre-entry eligibility check with Jobcentre Plus if you want to join the Work Ready Programme.
