An apprenticeship is a great choice to begin your career or to move you forwards in the area of work that interests you.

Apprenticeships are paid jobs which include training, so you’ll gain a nationally recognised qualification too.

To apply for an apprenticeship you must live and work in England, be aged sixteen or over and not be in full-time education.

Five great reasons to consider an apprenticeship...

  • It’s a paid job so you can earn while you learn.
  • You will receive high quality training and hands-on experience, with time in your working week dedicated to your development.
  • Because an apprenticeship is based around a job, you will gain skills and experience in the area of work you are interested in.
  • You will receive support and guidance every step of the way, from your training provider, your manager and your team.
  • Apprenticeships help boost your future career as you make connections and build relationships to take your career to the next level.

Telford & Wrekin Council has supported more than 200 people to gain qualifications through apprenticeships since 2017.

Currently, we have apprentices working towards qualifications in social work, civil engineering, project management, housing, adult care, business administration and more.
