The game has changed. Every day, right now, thousands of businesses and apprentices are succeeding together.
Apprentices get a win-win – real work, in a real company, training to get the skills companies really want. With a guaranteed salary. Employers get to see a fresh injection of talent. Keen, inquisitive and bursting with new ideas.
If you enjoy practical learning and are focused on launching your career, then an Apprenticeship is the right choice for you. Bolton College works with employers throughout the North West, providing exciting Apprenticeship programmes across a wide range of industry areas. From Construction to Sport, Childcare to Hospitality, Barbering to Business, there’s something for you!
When you’re in College, you’ll get to learn in modern facilities and take advantage of the experience of our industry specialists; plus you will have personal one-to-one support from your own dedicated Work Based Tutor.
To continually develop the quality of Apprenticeships the College is introducing new Apprenticeship standards, developed by employer groups called ‘Trailblazers’. Employers know what they want from their employees and they are best placed to describe what skills, knowledge and behaviours you will need to prepare for your chosen career. This means an Apprenticeship will give you all the right skills you need to secure employment or progress to further or higher education.
90% of apprentices will get a job or go into further training after finishing an Apprenticeship. Apprentices are making a difference. At thousands of different companies, large and small, all over the country. Right now. So whoever you are, whatever your background – your new career could be out there. What are you waiting for?
