Apprenticeships


An apprenticeship is a real job where you learn, gain experience and get paid.
An apprenticeship can be for people starting out on their work life journey at the age of 16, or those looking to change career for a different working life. There is no age limit on an apprenticeship.
Apprenticeships cover 1,500 job roles in a wide range of industries such as social care, engineering, veterinary nursing and accountancy.
You can search and apply for apprenticeship opportunities at Brent Council or within the borough.
