What is an Apprenticeship?

An Apprenticeship is a way for young people and adult learners to earn a wage while they train in a real job, gaining a real qualification and laying the foundations for a successful future.

City College Norwich offers a wide range of Apprenticeships ranging from accountancy and business and administration, to construction, engineering and dental nursing.

Apprenticeships increase productivity

Not only do Apprenticeships deliver real financial returns, they help to improve productivity and to be more competitive. Training apprentices is more cost effective than hiring skilled staff, leading to lower overall training and recruitment costs.

You develop a skilled, motivated and qualified workforce

Apprenticeships deliver skills designed around your business needs. They also help you develop the specialist skills you need to keep pace with the latest technology and working practices in your sector.

Apprenticeships motivate your workforce

Apprentices tend to be eager, motivated, flexible and loyal to the company that invested in them. Remember, an apprentice is with you because they want to be – they have chosen to learn on the job and commit to a specific career path.
