Taking on an apprentice

An apprenticeship is a mixture of work-based learning and study for people aged 16 and upwards.

We offer apprenticeships from Level 2 to degree-level, to provide clear routes for our learners to progress within an industry.

For the apprentice, apprenticeships are an opportunity to enter into an industry, earn a nationally-recognised qualification, and gain the skills and knowledge that businesses are looking for.

For businesses, apprenticeships are the perfect way to recruit new employees, upskill or retrain your current staff, and develop a skilled workforce tailored to the needs of your business.

97% of the businesses we work with say that they are satisfied with employing a Weston College apprentice, and 90% of our apprentices are offered permanent positions by their employers at the end of their training.
