Apprenticeship applicants 

If you have applied for an apprenticeship our Job Shop team will continue to work with you to find you employment as an apprentice. You could also approach employers to ask if they would be interested in taking on an apprentice in the coming months. 

Due to the current situation, it is uncertain how many apprenticeship opportunities will be available in your chosen sector. However, our dedicated recruitment team will continue to make every effort to find you a suitable apprenticeship.

If we can’t secure one for you, we will instead offer you a place on a full-time course at College. If you need to speak to us about your apprenticeship application, please email

All other applications for a course starting in September 2020

In the meantime, if you want to contact us about your application, please email and one of our advisers will get in touch.
