Gloucestershire College has transformed its live apprenticeship vacancies page for National Apprenticeship Week 2016, making it even easier for people to search and apply for apprenticeship vacancies in the county.

As well as an updated intro detailing how to navigate the page and apply, the page features a clear list of live apprenticeship vacancies, ordered by closing date, including the employer name, an overview of the role requirement, the location, hours and salary.

Each vacancy then links through to the full role summary, responsibilities and requirements, including desired skills, personal qualities, qualifications required and future prospects, as well as a description about the employer and link to apply via the national government apprenticeship website.

Currently there are 27 apprenticeships available with GC in a range of industries, from accountancy, administration and customer service to catering, dental nursing and childcare.

Featured vacancies include three accountancy apprenticeships at Whitley Stimpson in Banbury, paying £290 per week; four apprentice support workers at Expeditions Living in Cheltenham, paying £240 per week; five support worker apprenticeships at Tracscare in Cheltenham, paying £238.54 per week; and one apprentice learning and development administrator at Gloucestershire College, paying £230 per week.

Peter White, Vice Principal, said: “We are committed to working with local businesses to provide apprenticeship opportunities across a wide range of sectors, and the update to the live vacancies page on our website is another step forward in highlighting the huge range of opportunities available to both young people and those who might influence their next steps, such as parents and careers advisors.

“Gloucestershire College is the county champion of apprenticeships and fully supports National Apprenticeship Week by highlighting the value apprenticeships bring to both businesses and the apprentices themselves. Apprenticeships offer young people real, lifelong career opportunities as they earn while they learn, and enable businesses to ‘grow their own’ talent. It’s win-win.”

Apprenticeships are open to those aged 16 and over who are living in England and not in full-time education. All apprentices receive, at the very least, the appropriate national minimum apprenticeship wage and after finishing, 90% stay on in employment; 71% with the same employer.

Gloucestershire College is currently training 976 apprentices with over 650 local businesses and is the title sponsor of the 2016 Gloucestershire Apprenticeship Awards.
