Apprenticeships at Cirencester College

Cirencester College is committed to delivering high quality business and professional apprenticeships in key business sectors. The College works with a range of employers to promote and deliver apprenticeships that meet the needs of the local economy and provide employment opportunities for young people across Gloucestershire and surrounding counties.

An apprenticeship is a full-time job, with training. A blend of ‘on’ and ‘off the job’ training that provides individuals with the skills they need for their chosen career, while also earning a wage.

Apprenticeships are available across a wide range of industry sectors and are an excellent way of gaining nationally recognised apprenticeship skills, knowledge and behaviours, whilst working and gaining real workplace experience.

Anyone living in England, over the age of 16 (who has completed Year 11 at secondary school), and wants to work in a job full-time whilst gaining qualifications, can apply for an apprenticeship. There is no upper age limit to starting an apprenticeship.

You can do an apprenticeship after GCSEs, after A-levels or even after doing a degree, however in order to access any Government funding, your apprenticeship must be different to your degree or provide you with significant new learning opportunities.
