To begin this course you must be eligible to work within England or the European Economic Area (EEC), be employed for a minimum of 30 hours in a relevant job role and be able to attend college on a part-time basis.

If you do not have an employer to support your apprenticeship the college will assist you to find an employer through our dedicated employer support team.
You will need to have achieved GCSEs at grade 9 - 4 (or comparable qualification) in English and maths.

Your interviewer will discuss with you what minimum level you will need to achieve at initial assessment.
Additionally, if you have already obtained a level 4 or above qualification then you will not be eligible for apprenticeship funding. Individuals who already have a qualification at level 4 or above are only eligible for funding for a higher apprenticeship at level 5 or above.
Please note that all apprenticeships are subject to availability of space.
