Are you ready to be an apprentice?
- About to leave school and want to start earning a living
- Looking for a job with training
- Wondering where your career is taking you
An apprenticeship could be the best start to your new career. An apprenticeship gives you the chance to learn the skills you need to succeed while earning a wage at the same time.
As an apprentice you’ll spend most of the week in the workplace learning practical skills and attend college one day a week to learn the theory side of your job, along with other useful skills that you might need in the workplace such as IT and communication skills. You are supported throughout by both your employer and the College.

My teachers and friends all expected me to go onto university after sixth form, but I realised that it wasn’t for me. This realisation came just two weeks before I was due to sit my A Levels, and at the time I didn’t think there would be any other option but to find a full-time job, but I was offered an interview for an apprenticeship at Elekta, where I could put theory into practice every day. I was offered the role and have never looked back!
I am the only female apprentice that my company has taken on in several years, so this makes me want to work even harder to prove my ability in College and impress my employer too. When I did work experience at Elekta, I worked with a female employee who was an apprentice and now she is in a senior management role. I find this incredibly inspiring and it is another motivation for me to do my best.
When I first started on a Building Craft Occupations course, I had absolutely no experience of the construction industry at all. I have now almost completed a Level 3 qualification and have secured a career with a company which has selected me for management training.
I am much more confident on site these days as I know that I have the knowledge and skills to deal with a wide range of situations. I believe it is important to have started from grass-roots level in an industry like construction, so that if I become a manager I understand what everyone on site is doing and can appreciate the pressures they are under. This is an additional motivation for me to do well at College
