5 apprenticeships you never knew existed

This Nation­al Appren­tice­ship week we are fir­ing up the con­ver­sa­tion around appren­tice­ships. The theme for this week is Look Beyond and we are encour­ag­ing every­one to #Look­Be­yond the tra­di­tion­al stereo­types and myths which com­mon­ly sur­round apprenticeships. 

One if the most com­mon stereo­types is that appren­tice­ships are only avail­able in tra­di­tion­al indus­tries such as con­struc­tion and hair­dress­ing. Well, we want­ed to let you know that that isn’t the case at all! In fact, there are hun­dreds of appren­tice­ships you can under­take at lots of dif­fer­ent lev­els – rang­ing from entry lev­el all the way through to degree level.

Not­ting­ham Col­lege adver­tise appren­tice­ships all year round and we reg­u­lar­ly have over 100 vacan­cies on our web­site at any one time. Here’s a few which are cur­rent avail­able to apply for, in indus­tries you prob­a­bly nev­er knew existed…
