Thousands of young people choose to begin their careers every year with an apprenticeship.
If you’re interested in learning while you work, then an apprenticeship might be the right choice for you. An apprenticeship allows you to start work or to progress your career by combining learning at work with a programme of study, which helps to build skills and achieve nationally recognised qualifications.
For many young people the opportunity to earn while they learn is a really attractive alternative to studying for A Levels or going to university.
To go down this route, you’ll need to be working 16 hours a week or more in an industry linked to one of our apprenticeships and be at least 16 years old. If you haven’t lined up a job already then do get in touch, we might be able to help. You don’t need any formal qualifications, although you may need to come along to an interview and assessment event.
Our apprenticeships start throughout the year. It’s the norm to attend Moulton one day a week, evenings or on block release and the length of the apprenticeship is tailored to suit you.
We currently offer more than 30 apprenticeship programmes across a range of sectors and at three different levels:
Intermediate - equivalent to 5 GCSE passes
Advanced - equivalent to 2 A level passes
Higher - can lead to NVQ Level 4 and above, or a foundation degree
The sectors that we currently offer apprenticeships in are:
With such a range of options we hope you’ll find something that suits you.
