Apprenticeships

A great way to work and learn at the same time

 

Apprenticeships are work-based courses which involve learning and gaining qualifications while working for an employer. An apprentice works at the employer's premises, gaining practical experience and skills while working towards a qualification which is relevant to their job. They will normally work full-time with the employer, with one day per week (during term-time) spent at East Riding College. However, some apprenticeships do not require college attendance and are achieved solely in the workplace.

The benefits of an apprenticeship include:

  • Earning while you learn
  • Learning on the job
  • Good career prospects
  • Getting the skills you need for a trade
  • Getting trained in a job you already do
