Plymouth City Council has been running a highly successful award winning apprenticeship scheme since 2011.
The scheme is open to anyone aged 16 and over who holds GCSE grades or equivalent. Due to funding restrictions we cannot accept graduates.
We currently offer over 10 apprenticeship frameworks including project management, business administration, street cleansing, customer service, accountancy and horticulture.
Apprentices are employed as full time staff on temporary 12 month contracts. You pay their salary and provide them with a work placement and the training provider (a college or training establishment) will provide them with the qualifications.
By employing an apprentice in your team you will have an enthusiastic, young person who will bring new ideas and ways of working to your team, they are cost effective and can be seen as an alternative to employing agency staff.
The apprenticeship scheme is led by two apprenticeship coordinators who support your apprentice during their placement, help with recruitment and liaise with the training provider.
