I chose an apprenticeship because I didn’t think university was right for me and I wanted to get straight on with learning on the job. My favourite part of being an apprentice was having that ongoing support at college and at work. Since completing my apprenticeship, Everyclick has taken me on as a full-time Social Media and Marketing Assistant. I would 100% recommend doing an apprenticeship to get you through the door.

Reach Your Potential

At Gloucestershire College we know that everyone has different strengths, interests and ambitions.

Some of our students are unsure of what they want to do, so studying full time is a great option as you can explore different types of work through the course and our student development programme.

But if you know what career you want to do, want to get heaps of work experience at the same time and get a head start on the career ladder, then an apprenticeship could be the right option for you post-GCSEs.

Fast Track Your Career with Gloucestershire’s Leading Apprenticeship Provider

Apprenticeships today aren’t just for trade jobs like plumbing and carpentry, although we offer apprenticeships in those too.

We work with over 650 of Gloucestershire’s best businesses to provide apprenticeships across 17 sectors.

You can achieve a certificate, diploma and even degree-level qualifications, making them a good alternative to university and full-time study.

A foot through the door

Young people who build links with organisations and professionals in the sectors that they are interested in can build a more effective network – offering a better chance of getting a recommendation they may need to get their foot on the employment ladder.

“We have found that by hiring apprentices it has been mutually beneficial to developing the growth of our business, as well as education and developing talented hairdressers for the industry.

“Over the years we have had several members of the team reach the finals of the Wella Trend Vision Awards and three finalist places in the Young Colourist of the Year Awards by L’Oreal.

“The training and encouragement they have received has enabled them to achieve things they could have only dreamed of.”
