Apprenticeships are an effective way to bring new talent into your business and develop a highly skilled and qualified workforce.

Apprenticeships are perfect for people who would like to earn a wage, gain an industry recognised qualification at college whilst working at your company to put that learning into practice.

If you have been thinking about hiring an apprentice to add talent to your business, now is a great time. Eligible employers are set to receive an increased incentive payment of £3,000 for each new apprentice hired between 1st April and 30th September 2021 under the scheme announced in the budget statement on 3rd March. Companies who hire an apprentice aged 16-18 can also benefit from an additional £1,000 payment meaning that some employers could receive a payment of up to £4000.

You can hire an apprentice with confidence with us at South Staffordshire College as we scooped the award for best Further Education College for Apprenticeship Training at The School Leaver Awards during 2020 as well as being recognised as the top college in the West Midlands for Apprenticeship Achievement.

We offer apprenticeships and higher-level apprenticeships within a range of industry sectors including digital and IT, marketing, care, leisure, retail, land based, construction, trades, engineering, motor vehicle and business and many more.

Our apprenticeship team can support you with advertising vacancies, screening applicants and shortlisting candidates to attend an interview.
