Apprenticeships

What is an Apprenticeship?

A real job, with hands-on experience and a salary – alongside industry standard training and a qualification.

An Apprenticeship is for people of all ages, 16+, to help kick-start a career in a job that suits their skills and interests, to facilitate a career change, or for people who would like to progress in their current role. With Apprenticeships now in a wide variety of sectors and roles, and at different levels, there is a programme with Exeter College for you.

“After completing my A-levels, I finally knew for sure that going to university wasn’t the right choice for me. Being able to earn money, take my exams and also build my career straight out of college was an amazing opportunity.”

– Katie, Sheppard Rockey and Williams

“Why did we go for apprentices? The market for recruiting good quality staff is really hard and it’s been a great way of bringing in intelligent, local individuals. They absorb knowledge and can be trained in the way we want things to be done, the systems we have, and the way that our clients want to work. It’s been absolutely invaluable to us.”

– Nigel, WNW Digital
