At North West Community Services Training Ltd we provide Apprenticeships. Here’s a short guide.
What is an Apprenticeship?
An apprenticeship is a programme of learning that combines practical training on the job with study towards recognised qualifications. It is a real job where you learn, gain experience and get paid. By the end of an apprenticeship, you’ll have the right skills and knowledge needed for your chosen career.

- Study and develop your knowledge, skills and behaviours for a minimum of 6 hours per week
- Complete assessments during and at the end of your apprenticeship
- Be on a career path with lots of future potential
- Work alongside experienced staff
- Have access to the same employment rights
