How do I apply?

Please contact us to sign up for an open event - following the open event, the next steps in application will be explained to you.

When can I Start?

Our apprenticeships commence in August/September however there are occasionally opportunities to join mid year. 

What is an apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships are an excellent way of gaining qualifications and workplace experience. As an employee, you can earn as you learn and you can gain practical skills from the workplace.  

Do I get paid?

Yes, you will get paid an annual salary directly into your bank account on a monthly basis.  The rate of pay is based on the National Apprenticeship Wage however some placements may offer pay above this rate.

How long does it take?

The length of an apprenticeship varies depending on prior skill levels of the apprentice and the qualification being obtained. Generally our apprenticeships last between one and two years.

Do I get holidays?

Yes.  You will receive a contract from your employer detailing your annual holiday allowance.  This will be discussed at your interview.  It is important to note that due to the nature of a school/teaching based Apprenticeship, you are usually only permitted to take leave in the school holidays.
