Take on an Apprentice

Taking on an apprentice is straightforward and does not mean lots of red tape. We do a Health & Safety check in the workplace and complete a simple learning agreement setting out the commitment of the college, the learner and you the employer.

If you are thinking about taking on an apprentice, please call one of our Liaison Officers who will be happy to visit you and talk you through the process, including our free recruitment service.

Or Take on an Intern

  • Employers can select their Intern through an interview process.

  • They will be a Level 3 student between study years.

  • They will work full time for a minimum of 4 weeks.

  • It is a project based placement to assist you with your business.

  • The role is a paid position (by employer) to give the Intern a real experience.
