An effective apprenticeship programme can provide a ready-made pipeline of talent waiting to take their chance in the world of work.

A carefully structured programme, designed with the help of employers, perfectly matches the needs of businesses with the academic requirements of curriculum – blending classroom-based learning with on-the-job training.
Apprenticeships from Level 2 up to Level 5 are offered, giving students the chance to secure a qualification while gaining valuable experience in the workplace.
Students will work with a mentor to learn job-specific skills with their employer, while 20 per cent of your time will be spent away from the workplace at college.

Northampton College is also here to help individuals progress in their career – and help companies train up their existing staff – with a range of professional part-time courses designed to give you the skills you need to take the next step. To help employers train and sustain a motivated, skilled and qualified workforce that makes a positive contribution to the success of your business.

A part-time course could help students gain qualifications linked to a work role; improve their Maths, English and IT skills; develop expertise and progress at work and put them on the fast-track to an exciting new career
