If you’ve found your way here, you’re already one step closer to your dream job.

With an Apprenticeship, you’ll get work experience, learn new skills and gain qualifications. And you’ll get paid. So, if you’re 15 or over, you could start your dream career as soon as you finish school, or change career direction if you’re over 19.


It might be too early to apply for an Apprenticeship vacancy if you’re still in Year 11, but that doesn’t mean you can’t apply for an Apprenticeship at City College.
