Future Ready Skills with City College Plymouth

04 February 2021 | Apprentices, College News

National Apprenticeship Week is here and as the South West’s top college for Apprenticeship achievement our fantastic team is well-placed to support individuals to ‘earn while they learn’.

Apprenticeships are recognised, work-based training programmes supported by an employer and the College. As a company employee, apprentices earn a wage and get on-the-job training from their workplace. 

Not only do Apprenticeships help the development of skills and knowledge for a rewarding career, they also help employers to build a workforce of committed and talented employees.

Our Business Engagement & Apprenticeships Manager, Mike Jones, said: “The beauty of any Apprenticeship is that they offer a fantastic opportunity for people of all ages and backgrounds to gain skills and experience in a specific job role. As the profile of Apprenticeships has developed in recent years, we are seeing an increase in the number of applications we receive for vacancies. The competition is fierce! 

“For school leavers considering an Apprenticeship, please check out the vacancies on our website or give us a call to chat through your next steps. If you don’t feel you’re ready for an Apprenticeship, we can offer you a Traineeship which is essentially a course with work experience that will give you the confidence to apply for an Apprenticeship vacancy.

“We know that this year predicted grades and exam results will be a concern for many young people and their parents, but please don’t panic as we are here to help!” 

The College offers Apprenticeships in a range of sectors from trades including automotive, construction and engineering, catering and hospitality, and hair and beauty, to marketing and creative industries, education and teaching and care and childcare. If you’re thinking about learning new skills, earning a wage and getting a qualification to further your career, register your interest here. 

If you’re a parent of a 15-18 year old and would like to help them reserve a place on a full-time course for September, text APPLY to 66777* and our College Information Team will be in touch. 

*Text will cost a standard network rate.
