Apprenticeships are a great way to learn valuable work skills, build experience, and start a new career. They’re available in more than 100 professions, from beauty and retail to construction and digital. They take between one and five years to complete.

There are lots of great benefits to starting an apprenticeship, including:

  • getting paid while you train
  • gaining skills and experience in the profession you're interested in
  • having a great balance of work skills and learning, where at least 20% of your time in off-the-job learning. This is often at a college, university or training provider

Where could an apprenticeship take you?

We have helped more than 1,000 people into apprenticeships across hundreds of roles. Watch our video to find out how we can support you.

Support throughout your apprenticeship

We'll support you throughout your apprenticeship and into your new career. This means we'll be there to help before, during and after your apprenticeship.

Before your apprenticeship

You'll take part in our short pre-employment FastTrack course. This equips you with the skills, knowledge and behaviours to succeed at interviews.

This course runs in collaboration with some of our employer organisations.

Meet the team and find out about the company and the apprenticeship opportunity. The course runs in conjunction with live opportunities and is available to all shortlisted candidates. The FastTrack programme is also run for all apprenticeship opportunities at Clarion.

Tips for writing your apprenticeship application

During your apprenticeship

Our apprenticeship mentoring programme ensures you receive dedicated, structured one-to-one support. This not only helps you settle into your new position, but also helps your apprenticeship lead to a permanent and fulfilling career.

At the end of your apprenticeship

We’ll work with you to progress to your next role. This often involves securing a permanent role at the organisation in which you did your apprenticeship.
