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.
