Why Stoke on Trent College for Apprenticeships

Further your career prospects whilst gaining qualifications, practical experiences and earning money on one of our Apprenticeships. 

As well as partnerships with employer networks, such as the North Staffordshire Engineering Group, we work directly with over 600 employers across a range of industries in the region, who all need skilled apprentices to make a difference in their organisation. 

We’ll teach you the theory and key skills and you’ll put them straight into practice with your employer as you continue to learn on the job alongside experienced staff to gain job-specific skills. 

You’ll gain nationally recognised qualifications that fit around your job, with Apprenticeships taking between one and four years to complete, depending on the industry sector and level you’re starting at. 

There are plenty of career pathways available on an Apprenticeship and we have an experienced team of teaching staff and assessors that will help you to develop the knowledge, skills and behaviours you need in order to be a success in whatever area you’re interested in. Many Apprenticeships form the basis of a longer career pathway and progression within an industry and ensure that you’re equipped with the transferable skills to start or progress your career. 

Whatever your starting point with us, be that on a full-time course, or currently in employment and starting an Apprenticeship, we’ll help you into the right Apprenticeship and work closely with your employer to ensure you get the most out of your study and working experience.
