Apprenticeships

Becoming an apprentice is a step towards a real career path. Apprenticeships offer the chance to get paid whilst studying to gain a formal qualification plus valuable work experience 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.
