Apprenticeships not only bring professionally trained and qualified people into your company but can also be a cost-effective way of up-skilling existing staff.

Employing an Apprentice

Employing an Apprentice or investing in your current workforce with Apprenticeship training is easier than you think with the support of Coventry College.

With Apprenticeships, it’s simply a case of finding and developing the right programme to fit your organisation.

Apprenticeships are available to businesses of all sizes, in various sectors and industries and at different levels – up to degree level.

Apprenticeships bring together learning in the workplace, formal off-the-job training and the opportunity to practice new skills in a real work environment, resulting in a recognised qualification for the employee. The apprentice can earn while they learn, gaining valuable skills and knowledge in a specific job role.
