Apprenticeships combine training in a job with around one day a week of study. Apprenticeships are available to anyone over the age of 16.

Being an apprentice enables you to gain skills and experience on the job, whilst earning money and working towards a qualification.

We offer apprenticeships in a wide variety of job roles and teams including finance, law, community development and greenspace.

Apprenticeships involve studying with an approved training provider; this could be either a college or a university.

All apprenticeships are paid for by the Council with the apprenticeship levy. You can find out more about the apprenticeship levy on the GOV.UK website (external link).

Don't just take our word for it. Hear what our past apprentices have to say.

The role has been very engaging and kept me on my toes throughout the time I have worked here. This is mainly due to the variety of matters that are dealt with by our in-house legal team. I have learnt a wide range of skills that have helped me to grow into my role. My client interaction and management has been developed, along with my research skills, and formulating responses based on research I have done.”
- Luke, Legal Apprentice
"Since starting work here, the support given to me by my training provider has been fantastic, while I study for a Level 3 NVQ in Business Administration. My favourite part of the role is the customer-facing element. This role is definitely influenced by event-organisation; I've already learnt so much, not just work-based skills, but life skills. Dealing with members of the public, event management, compliments, complaints and so much more. The phrase 'you learn something new every day' really rings true with my job!"
