Stoke on Trent College Traineeships

At Stoke on Trent College we are able to offer a wide range of Traineeships, including groups in hospitality and catering, plumbing and electrical installation, welding and construction trades.

We will also be able to help individual students access Traineeships in other subject areas such as hair, beauty, health and social care and motor vehicle. If you apply for an Apprenticeship in these areas but are unsuccessful then we will support you to find a suitable Traineeship as a step towards an Apprenticeship.
