Think Sandwell - Apprenticeship Vacancies

What is an apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships are high quality, work-based training programmes for people who want to develop their prospects and careers. An apprenticeship gives you the opportunity to work and study in the employment area that you are interested in. They can be taken up by people new to a company, or by existing staff who want to develop skills and progress their careers. 

If you decide to take up an apprenticeship, you will:

  • Be earning and learning at the same time while gaining valuable skills and experience 
  • Enrol on a course with an accredited training provider/college to gain new knowledge and skills
  • Gain nationally recognised qualifications specifically relating to your career

The Think Sandwell  Employment Team supports creation and delivery of apprenticeships addressing skills shortages and gaps within the local labour market.

If you are interested in applying for an apprenticeship and want to know more, or if you are an employer wishing to take on an new apprentice please email the team for more details.
