If you decide that you want to develop your skills through work, an apprenticeship may be the right choice for you.
Apprenticeships provide you with an opportunity to gain new skills, knowledge and experience to develop your career prospects. Earn a weekly wage, gain a recognised industry qualification, and put your skills into practice whilst building your confidence in a working environment.
A wide range of industries provide apprenticeship opportunities across a variety of sectors; a hands-on, practical option for the career path of your choice. Nottingham College’s careers team can provide support with searching and applying for apprenticeship vacancies, and interviewing preparation to help you get that job. We have a dedicated apprenticeship team that work with local and national employers to source the apprenticeship opportunities for you.
