Many employers recognise that their future lies in quality Apprenticeships. Hartlepool College of Further Education believes this too, and we’re one of the biggest providers of Apprenticeships in the Tees Valley and County Durham, supporting over approximately 900 Apprentices.
Apprenticeships are a programme of structured learning and work experience encompassing almost all vocational areas. They offer trainees a broad spectrum of work and not just individual skills. Apprentices learn through a combination of on and off the job education and training. Apprentices gain experience working alongside other employees in their workplace, while the College delivers additional skills and studies.
Thousands of businesses in our region have recognised that Apprenticeships can make organisations more effective, productive and competitive by addressing the skills gaps directly and ensuring that employees get the skills that employers value and need. As well as school leavers, those who may have been previously employed are also eligible, and prior experience can be taken into consideration when assigning places.
The College also offers Higher Apprenticeships in the following areas: Construction, Civil Engineering and Building Services Engineering, you can find out more information HERE
