Apprenticeships at Fareham College

Another route to a successful career. Earn a salary and gain qualifications in the workplace.

What is an Apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships allow you to develop your practical skills and learn all the theory associated with your chosen specialism whilst being employed and earning a wage. The mode of delivery for different apprenticeships vary depending on the sector and employer requirements but generally, you learn at work for four days a week and are released to go to college one day per week to study and to complete the work necessary for your qualification.

Is an Apprenticeship right for me?

Apprenticeships are a great option if you already have a career in mind, and are looking for a way to earn money while you study. If you already work in a job you enjoy, an Apprenticeship will allow you to get the qualifications you need to progress. Like courses, they also come in different levels so you can enrol for the qualification suitable for your experience. Anyone aged 16 or over can enrol and start a new and exciting learning experience in the workplace.

If you’re still not sure about enrolling in an Apprenticeship with Fareham College, we also offer Traineeships. These are great introductions to the workplace and will allow you get a feel for the type of learning experience that an Apprenticeship offers.

Taylor Hoile

Studying for a Traineeship has opened a lot of doors for my future. I work at Salon 141 where I cut, colour and perm hair. Working and earning money while training has been the best option for me as it has helped me to feel independent while and gave me plenty of experience to progress onto my Level 2 Apprenticeship.


Steven Snook

I am an Advanced Engineering Apprentice at National Air Traffic Services (NATS). I conduct repairs and maintenance on radio station equipment all around the London area. I chose to do an apprenticeship because I loved the idea of getting paid to learn and becoming a full-time employee.


Joshua Frost

My plans for the future are to be part of a marketing team as a Graphic Designer. I'm gaining experience in website design, digital and print marketing and managing customer databases. I would definitely recommend an apprenticeship as an excellent route into your ideal career.
