To begin with, you will be assigned a Recruitment Co-ordinator whose role it is to provide you with the most up to Career Information, Advice and Guidance. Your Recruitment Co-Ordinator will send your CV across to our partner employers with apprenticeship vacancies and arrange interviews on your behalf. However, they will also encourage you to send your CV’s to employers that you are interested in working for as this can be equally as effective and increases your chances of finding an apprenticeship placement.
Once you have started your apprenticeship, you will be assigned a Training Coordinator. It is their role to support you from day one and for the duration of your Apprenticeship. They will visit you every 10 weeks to review your progress and will be available to speak to you at any time should you need to. Your assessors and tutors are also there to support you with your qualifications throughout your training.
A traineeship is an education and training programme that includes a work Placement to help you develop the necessary workplace skills to progress into employment or further learning.
The course will also give you an opportunity to develop your English and Maths (if required) and develop a range of employability based skills that will prepare you for your future career.
Traineeships are available in a wide range of sectors including Business, Childcare Construction and Pharmacy plus many more.
Yes provided you are aged 16-24 and do not have any qualifications at Level 3 or above i.e. A-level/NVQ L3.
Approximately 14 weeks from starting.
No, but the employer may contribute towards travel and meal costs. We aim to support all students by arranging Metro Bus/Train travel passes during the first month, thereafter supported by a weekly cash allowance to cover further travel costs.
No, only if you have GCSEs (grades A-C) or L2 qualifications in maths or English.
You can apply for an apprenticeship at any time during the year. Please be aware that some of our apprenticeships start in September so we advise you to apply by Easter.
You can apply by clicking the ‘Apply’ link on the home page of our website at www.citytraining.org.uk. This link will direct you to our online application form. Complete the form with your personal details, qualifications and experience and click ‘submit’.
Providing you meet our entry criteria, we will then invite you in for an initial assessment which consists of a short online maths and English test and an interview. Each apprenticeship has a benchmark level which you will need to achieve in the assessment to be eligible. If you fail to meet the benchmark for the course of your choice, you will be given the opportunity to resit the assessment on one more occasion.
Once you have successfully completed the assessment and interview, we will begin the search for an employer for you to start your apprenticeship with and get your career started!
