Do I have to pay anything to become an apprentice?

No. While you are an apprentice, your employer pays you a salary and supports you whilst you undertake your training.

How long will it take?

Apprenticeships typically take between one and four years to complete, depending on the type of apprenticeship and the level. There is no set time to complete an apprenticeship as the length of time taken will depend on the qualification taken, the ability of the individual apprentice and the employer’s requirements.

Support during training

Your employer and training provider (the College) will make sure you have support. Their job is to ensure that your training fits your personal requirements, offers the skills needed for the job and satisfies national standards. They will also be there to help and support you through any challenges or problems.

Case Studies

Kauser Piperdi

"When he began speaking about the apprenticeship programme, I instantly knew this is something I would enjoy and i'm very glad I took this route"

When I first started my apprenticeship I got abit overwhelmed with how different working and studying was. With the encouragement from my colleagues and assessor I was able to cope with this new challenge. I was in year 11 when someone from New City College came to speak at my secondary school about Apprenticeships. When he began speaking about the apprenticeship programme I instantly knew this is something I would enjoy and i'm glad I took this route. 

My experience as an apprentice has enabled me to really think about my career and allows me to learn new things such as ICT skills. Coming to the college weekly to meet my assessor helps me stay on track with my work and ask for help if i need it with any units of my coursework. 

I have now completed my level 2 and started my level 3 recently which is going well, i have nearly completed my level 2 ICT functional skills aswell. 

Employing an Apprentice - Employers

What is an Apprenticeship?

An Apprenticeship is a work-based training programme designed around the needs of employers, which leads to nationally-recognised qualifications for the apprentice.

Our programmes will ensure that your apprentice is properly trained to perform the job you need them to do and you may be eligible to receive government funding.

You can use Apprenticeships to recruit and train new employees as well as develop your existing staff to take your business where it needs to go.

Who can apply?

Any suitable company can apply. Every Apprentice will be allocated a dedicated Assessor to offer advice and guidance and plan a bespoke Apprenticeship programme. Assessors support Apprentices throughout the programme in liaison with you as the Employer.
