Work while you study – an apprenticeship is a way to gain the skills, knowledge and experience needed to get into many careers. They combine work, training and study – letting you ‘earn while you learn’.
There are many different apprenticeships available across a wide range of industries, and for a wide variety of job roles. As a paid employee, each apprentice works alongside their studies. There are no student fees – training costs are funded by the government and your employer.
It’s an ideal option if you have a clear idea of the career path you want to follow, providing practical, on-the-job training, and classroom-based instruction.
Croydon College is one of the largest providers of apprenticeships in the South East. We offer a wide range of apprenticeships in a variety of sectors and are always looking to offer new programmes.
