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

 

Apprenticeship Bursary opportunities 

If you are aged between 16-24 years old and are starting your first apprenticeship and are a care-leaver , you will be entitled to a £1000 bursary in the first year.
