When it comes to deciding which path to take for your future career, it's crucial you pick the option that suits you. Apprenticeships offer an exciting, hands-on way to start or progress your career whilst being in paid employment and gaining nationally recognised qualifications.

We are excited to be rolling out the new Apprenticeship Standards, which have been specifically designed by employers to meet the needs of industry and provide you with the skills and knowledge you will need to work in your chosen career.

Each course provides a blend of practical hands-on experience with the underpinning knowledge required. As you approach the end of your apprenticeship you'll complete an End-Point Assessment which proves you are at the required standard to achieve your apprenticeship.

What apprenticeships does Writtle College offer?

We can offer you the opportunity to complete an apprenticeship in any of the following areas:

How do I apply?

An apprentice needs to be in paid employment, so while you can apply for the apprenticeship before you find an employer, you’ll need to be employed before you can start the course.

Many of our apprentices already work or volunteer for the companies who then decide to support them through their apprenticeship. We're always happy to provide your employers with the information they need about employing an apprentice and can offer advice, however small or large businesses may be.

I don’t have an employer
If you're interested in becoming an apprentice but don’t have an employer, see a list of our current apprenticeship vacancies (and tips on how to find an employer).
