Hartlepool College of Further Education is your best choice for apprenticeship provision. SEE the benefits of working with Hartlepool College to educate and train a highly skilled workforce.

Since the general election in 2015, apprenticeships have been a major Government priority to improve skills and productivity in the UK. The then Prime Minister, David Cameron, announced that a new £3 million target for apprenticeship starts is envisaged in the lifetime of the parliament. This will be achieved through: 

  • Greater apprenticeship starts in the Public Sector 
  • 2.3% target for certain Public Bodies to meet; 
  • Government contracts of a certain size will also require a commitment from tendering organisations on apprenticeships  
  • General increase of starts across all sectors



Whatever course you choose, you'll get the highest level of training from specialist tutors, benefiting from their knowledge and experience of working not just in education but also in industry.
