A guide to apprenticeships

A guide to apprenticeships

There are many different routes to employment and career success. Apprenticeships offer a fantastic pathway to fufill your career ambitions.

As an Apprentice you’ll be paid a wage and earn as you learn, gaining a technical qualifcation at the same time as completing your training with an employer - which will help you continue on your career journey.

At The Sheffield College we work with more than 850 employers across a wide range of sectors, supporting more than 2,000 Apprentices aged over 16. If you’re looking for a change from classroom-based studies and prefer learning in the workplace, then an Apprenticeship might be a good choice for you.

As an Apprentice, you’ll usually spend one day a week in college and the rest of the week in the workplace developing your skills, knowledge and industry contacts that can lead to a permanent job or, in some cases, a Higher Level Apprenticeship.

Today’s Apprenticeships are available in professions such as business, education, information technology, creative industries, digital technology and law, as well as traditional sectors such as brickwork, construction, plumbing and gas tting. As a large employer, the college also recruits and trains Apprentices within the organisation.

You can start an Apprenticeship at an intermediate, advanced or even a higher level and work your way up through the levels. So, in some cases, you’ll be able to progress to university if you want to study to degree level.

Our Apprentices tell us they are keen to get into the world of work and love the fact that they are getting industry skills and experience as well as a wage. There’s never been a better time to start an Apprenticeship. Choose The Sheffield College and a career, not just a course. We look forward to welcoming you!
