Becoming an apprentice is a step towards a real career path. Apprenticeships offer paid work experience and the chance to study and gain a formal qualification at the same time. GC has lots of apprenticeships in a range of business sectors, from IT, construction and engineering, to hairdressing, care and hospitality.
