Apprenticeships

Earn while you learn with an Apprenticeship

Apprenticeships offer the chance to develop your knowledge and skills and get paid at the same time.

As an apprentice, you will:

  • Earn a salary
  • Receive training from colleagues and tutors
  • Develop knowledge and skills in your chosen career
  • Gain nationally recognised qualifications

The College of West Anglia is one of the largest training providers in the region, and works with hundreds of employers across Norfolk and Cambridgeshire in supporting students (aged 16+) through apprenticeships in a wide variety of work areas. Work-based learning is a great opportunity to combine practical experience and technical support.
