94.7% of apprentices found out college induction useful and it provided them with the knowledge required for their course.
Three quarters (75%) of apprentices who had never worked before starting their apprenticeship, remained in paid work after completing their apprenticeship.
What will an apprentice gain by the end of the programme?
Apprentices will achieve a qualification which may vary depending on which apprenticeship they have completed. The main benefit for an apprentice is the work experience they gain and the majority and confidence that comes with that. Though there is no guarantee of a job at the end of an apprenticeship, many of our apprentices are kept on for permanent positions, a higher level apprenticeship, or further training by their employers.
This will be my child’s first job. Is there any support available to prepare them?
Yes, they will be brought in to the college for an information session prior to being sent to an employer. This session will cover information on apprenticeships and an introduction to employability topics such as interview techniques and CV writing. If your child requires further support, we have a link with a local authority for further employability training.
