Modern Apprenticeships

Modern Apprenticeships are now very popular with employers. As well as creating a more responsive, motivated workforce through broader, transferable skills and self-learning, they may also reduce staff turnover by the implementation of career progression plans. 

Modern Apprenticeships are available in a variety of areas – everything from hospitality and life sciences to customer services and engineering, as well as many more. They offer over 16s the opportunity to train for a nationally-recognised qualification whilst being in paid employment.

All of our MA courses are industry developed to include the skills required for success in that profession. By taking the Modern Apprentice route, school leavers can earn sooner, but still work towards a qualification whilst in employment and earning a salary. So, if you want to combine study with work and earn a regular wage then this might be the perfect route for you.

Remember, you have to be employed to be a Modern Apprentice.

If you don’t get a Modern Apprenticeship at your first attempt, don’t be disheartened. You may be best served coming to college to study for a year, making sure you are ready for your next MA application. Studying on a full-time basis can often help you to further develop your knowledge and skills, providing you with an interview opportunity and great experiences to put on your CV.

Pre-apprenticeship courses

Employers often come to us looking for our best students to recruit as apprentices as they know that our successful students will have the required level of knowledge to enter their industry and the commitment to pursue their chosen career. We can also help you with interview preparation.
