  • Carpentry and Joinery
  • Electrical Installation
  • Engineering

Employer Benefits

Employing an apprentice is the ideal way to ensure you can build and develop your company’s workforce. With skills shortages in so many key areas it ensures you are developing both the academic and vocational skills required for the future.  We will work with you to ensure the programme your apprentice follows suits your business needs.

Employee Benefits

You have the opportunity either as a new or existing employee to train both in the workplace and at college to ensure you can develop your skills and knowledge to follow your chosen career.
