Apprenticeship Programmes

We offer a range of apprenticeships to suit your business needs. Our experts are ready to train apprentices in Business and Professional Services, It and Computing, Engineering, Construction, Care, Childcare, Dentistry, Hairdressing and Hospitality.

For both new recruits and your existing staff members

Apprenticeships aren’t just for school leavers looking to take their first step on the career ladder. In fact, our apprenticeship qualifications range from level 1 to 6, meaning apprentices can study advanced courses and even achieve a degree.

Businesses are investing in apprenticeships for their current staff and managers so they can learn the essential skills needed to contribute to business growth and lead effectively. Find out how you can train existing members of staff through apprenticeships by getting in touch with our Employer Training & Apprenticeships team via:

Flexible start dates

Starting in September isn't the only option. For many of our programmes including construction, engineering and accounting, Gloucestershire College has two entry dates allowing apprentices to start in both September and January. In addition to this, many of our programmes are delivered continuously, meaning they can be started at any point throughout the year. Gloucestershire College welcomes prospective apprentices and employers to get in touch at any time to explore the wide range of apprenticeship options available to begin almost immediately.
