Apprenticeships

Apprenticeships Get Involved.....with the construction industry apprenticeship experts!

An apprenticeship offers young people and adult learners the opportunity to earn while they learn in a real job and gain a qualification. Hiring an apprentice gives employers the opportunity to develop their own talent, fill a skills gap and improve productivity.

At Leeds College of Building we are experts in construction related Apprenticeships; we work with over 400 employers and have over 1,000 apprentices.

What is an apprenticeship?

An apprenticeship is a set of qualifications that make up a framework. They are developed by the industry sector in which they will be used and give students the skills they need to become a craftsperson, technician or manager in that area.

Typically, apprentices are required to complete the following qualifications:

  • NVQ - a work based competence qualification
  • Diploma – a knowledge based qualification
  • Key skills or functional skills

Apprenticeships are available at different levels ranging from intermediate through to advanced and higher, so you can start at level 2 and progress to level 5.

Who can apply?

Leeds College of Building offer Apprenticeships to school leavers and those aged 16 or over.

To apply for an apprenticeship you will need to be employed or have secured employment in your chosen role.
