Redcar & Cleveland College’s Apprenticeship programmes turn people into talented and skilled employees who can be a true asset to businesses. We work to support both the apprentice and employer to ensure the training meets the required standards to achieve success for all.
An Apprenticeship is a paid training programme that takes place whilst employed, leading to accredited qualifications that are truly valued by employers.
Employees on an Apprenticeship programme spend most of their time working on the job with their employer, with off the job training completed at college on a day-release basis. The amount of hours spent at college and attendance times vary depending on the Apprenticeship and the needs of the employer.
The College has a flexible approach in supporting employers, meaning all our Apprenticeships are provided in a way that best suits the employer and their needs.
Apprenticeships are open to anyone over 16 years of age subject to eligibility – whether a school leaver starting out on a career, a new member of staff or an existing employee who has taken on
additional duties and requires upskilling.
Employees must have a job that matches their chosen Apprenticeship and the employer must have agreed to give the employee the opportunity to fulfil the range of tasks necessary to achieve the qualifications. Whilst on an Apprenticeship programme, employees will earn at least the National Minimum Wage for apprentices.
