See our full list of current apprenticeship vacancies.

What can I expect from a higher apprenticeship?

As a higher apprentice, you will spend the majority of the week in the workplace, but you will regularly attend classes at college and have assessments and assignments to complete which count towards your qualification. Each qualification works slightly differently, so we will advise you on the times and days you will be expected to attend college when you apply to study for your qualification with us.

If you are looking for a new job role, you could consider applying for a higher apprenticeship through our dedicated apprenticeship matching service. This service, run by our expert Apprenticeship Team, aims to connect candidates to the most suitable employer vacancy.
