Our apprenticeships are designed to ensure you develop the skills the employer wants, giving you a real advantage in the workplace, with better long-term salary prospects and excellent progression opportunities.
An apprenticeship is a genuine salaried job with an accompanying assessment and skills development programme. You will gain industry knowledge and skills on the job, whilst working towards a nationally-recognised qualification.
There are four simple steps from application to becoming an apprentice:
Employers will want to make sure that you can cope with the type of the work involved. So the entry requirements will vary depending on the employer and the type and level of apprenticeship.
For direct entry to an Advanced Level Apprenticeship, you may need 4-5 GCSEs at grades 9-4/A-C or equivalent, sometimes including particular subjects. You may also be expected to take an entry test.
To start a higher apprenticeship, you are likely to need a qualification at level 3 or sufficient experience.
We offer a broad range of apprenticeships across a range of sectors and levels, all designed to ensure you achieve the best possible outcomes throughout your apprenticeship. Check out our apprenticeship standards page for an up-to-date listing of the apprenticeship standards and levels available.
After completing your apprenticeship, you may be offered a permanent job. Most successful apprentices (around 90%) stay in employment, often with the same employer.
Many apprentices receive increases in salary or job promotions as a result of completing their training while others take the opportunity to progress to higher levels of apprenticeships or on to further study, even to university.
An apprenticeship with Newham College will help you to gain the skills, confidence and experience needed to succeed in the workplace, whilst you earn a salary and have a great chance to secure a full-time job at the end of your training.
