As part of a planned series of events during National Apprenticeship week we will be hosting an Apprenticeship Open Evening on Thursday 10th February at our Basford campus.
An Apprenticeship gives you the opportunity to gain a nationally-recognised qualification, whilst receiving on the job training and getting paid.
If you are in your last year of secondary school or have recently left school, our open evening will help you plan your next steps in education. Many students will finish school and feel uncertain about their future. Some may not know what to study and what they want to do in their career. Other students may find that they have a rough idea of the field they want to go into but may be unsure about their educational options.
Our Open Evening is a chance to talk to local and national employers in addition to our dedicated apprenticeship team, who will also be on hand to guide you through the application process. Find out the latest information on all the different types of apprenticeships that are available. Discover the key benefits of doing an apprenticeship.
Talk to employers about the roles that they have available. Employers we have confirmed thus far are - British Gypsum, William Davis Homes, GRAHAM Construction, Phoenix Brickwork (UK) Ltd, Sandicliffe, Fix Auto UK, Halfords Autocentres, AutoRaise, NUH, Gemini ARC, Stearn Electric Co Ltd Hankinson Ltd, Pick Everard, Oakfield Construction.

Why choose an apprenticeship?
Apprenticeships are a great way to build qualifications and experience. Most of your apprenticeship will be spent working alongside your employer building practical experience. Depending on your course, you may need to attend the college once a week.
Whilst you work, you will be paid an apprenticeship wage of £4.30 per hour. If you work full time, you’ll have a minimum of 20 days of paid holiday, plus 8 bank holidays.
Our apprenticeships last between 1 – 5 years, depending on what level of qualification you want to achieve. Apprenticeships are available in 3 different levels – intermediate, advanced, and higher. Most of our higher-level apprenticeships may include a HNC or foundation degree.
