Apprenticeships Offered:

Many of our apprentices have found their own employer through family, friends, work trials or contacting employers in their local area to see if they would support their apprenticeship.


  1. Apply for a full-time course in your chosen subject

Don't worry if you can't find an employer in your chosen subject area, simply apply for a full-time course in the subject you’re interested in, and then when an opportunity comes along, you can transfer over to an apprenticeship. In some trades, you will start at Level 1 or 2, regardless of your qualifications as you will need to build up industry-specific skills.

Engineering Apprentice at Ricoh

I studied Product Design at A Level and really enjoyed it. Taking on an Engineering Apprenticeship seemed like the natural progression from that, and I’ve appreciated every minute of it. It is great working for Ricoh and being able to study at SCG, as I get so many opportunities, such as taking part in WorldSkills.

Business Apprentice at Kingsland Financial

I tried the Business Administration Apprenticeship without a lot of work experience or relevant qualifications and very little confidence. My employer gave me a safe and stable environment to learn new and different skills and liaised with the college which tailored the qualification modules to suit my job role. It was an excellent route for me because it gave me the opportunity to learn new skills I had never imagined I would be good at.

Advanced Carpentry and Joinery Apprentice

I have come to the end of my apprenticeship and have gained not only practical joinery skills but also life skills such as organisation and communication. I have learnt how to work safely and well in a team environment. This apprenticeship has been a brilliant way to earn and learn along the way and has set me up with skills and qualifications to carry me through the rest of my working life.
