Due to the current situation involving COVID-19, we have had to make some changes to our application process for Apprenticeships.

We encourage you to continue applying for apprenticeships using the link below. However, as it is not possible to invite applicants into College for our Information & Assessment sessions, these are now being conducted by telephone.

Everyone who has booked on to our Easter Information Sesssion will be receiving an email to arrange a suitable date and time for their telephone interview. If you haven't already booked on to an information session, it is not too late to apply, email: apprenticeships@stephensoncoll.ac.uk to register your interest.

Want to earn why you learn? An apprenticeship could be for you!

Apprenticeships offer a fantastic opportunity to earn while you learn, and improve your job prospects. You spend one day in college and the rest of the week developing your practical skills and knowledge on the job.

Who can become an Apprentice?

You must be 16 or over, living in England and not in Full-Time education.

You also need an employer to sponsor your Apprenticeship. If you are not employed we will match your details against any vacancies we have on file while you also apply for jobs.

Why become an Apprentice?

You will be paid for working and training in an area you enjoy, receiving a minimum of £3.70 per hour.

With this great foundation to build on you will have a wide range of options available to you in the future.

How long is an Apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships take between 13 months and 48 months depending on your ability and your employers' requirements.

What qualifications can I achieve?

  • An NVQ (QCF) Level 2 or NVQ (QCF) Level 3
  • A Technical Certificate
  • Functional Skills including Literacy and Numeracy
  • Employment Rights and Responsibilities 

As an apprentice you will:

  • Work alongside experienced staff
  • Gain job-specific skills
  • Earn a wage and get holiday pay
  • Study towards a related qualification (usually one day a week)

In order to undertake an Apprenticeship you will need to have a job with a contract of employment for at least 30 hours per week or have a firm offer of employment within your chosen occupational area.
