We have apprenticeship vacancies available now

The pandemic has affected both work and study, giving us time to reflect and rethink career and training options. If you are exploring your options, an Apprenticeship with Shipley College could be the perfect solution. You’ll be paid to work in your chosen field and gain a qualification at the same time.

For school leavers aged 16+ this option is an alternative to full-time college, 6th form or even university. Apprenticeships are free and available to people of all ages, making them also a great option for those who want to retrain.

We have great working relationships with employers who are keen to fill vacancies right now. 

These include working outdoors in horticulture, caring for or helping others, or creative marketing roles, plus many more. So do get in touch to see how we can help you secure a role which interests you.

Once employed, College works closely with you and your employer to ensure you receive full support through regular progress reviews and feedback on your development.

  • Accountancy & Bookkeeping

This is what our apprentices have to say:

“I saw an advert for a Greenkeeping apprenticeship. I knew nothing about golf at the time but knew I wanted to work outside. I have been working at Bracken Ghyll Golf Club for just over a year. I wanted to earn while learning and didn’t want to be stuck in a classroom all day. I would advise friends it’s the best thing to do - you are out gaining real life work experience, learning lots and earning a wage at the same time.”  Ben, 18, Apprentice Greenkeeper.

“I am now coming towards the end of my Adult Lead Care Worker apprenticeship and I have enjoyed the whole experience. My theoretical knowledge has increased along with my practical knowledge. The support given to me by both the College and my tutors throughout this difficult year, throughout the pandemic and throughout home online learning has been fantastic and I could not have asked for more as a learner.” Shaid, Lead Adult Care Apprentice.

Apprentices can be a real asset to an organisation as they are a way to develop existing staff and recruit enthusiastic young people to join the workforce.
