What is an Apprenticeship?

As employees, apprentices earn a wage and work alongside experienced staff to gain job-specific skills. Off the job, usually on a day-release basis, apprentices receive training to work towards nationally recognised qualifications. The minimum salary is £2.73 per hour, however, many apprentices earn significantly more than this. Becoming an apprentice is a fantastic opportunity to get paid while you gain both valuable experience and a formal qualification.

How do I become an Apprentice?

If you are not employed you should prepare a CV and can submit it to us by emailing it to employer@southport.ac.uk. You must either already be in employment or find a business who is looking to hire an Apprentice. Southport College will then work with the business to devise the most appropriate Apprenticeship training course.

Why study your Apprenticeship with Southport College?

You will receive all the same support and access to facilities as our full time students, including free gym membership and NUS card.

We offer superb progression opportunities through our Higher Education provision.

You can get access to our specialist vocational lectures and to our wider services such as the Dyslexia Team. 

Key facts about Apprenticeships

  • Intermediate (Level 2)
  • Advanced (Level 3)

Learning takes place in the workplace and through taught classes.
