Apprenticeships

Apprenticeships

Apprenticeships combine work, training, and study, letting you earn while you learn.

Why apply for an apprenticeship?

Becoming an apprentice is an excellent way to gain the skills, knowledge and experience you will need to follow many careers. There are lots of different apprenticeships available across a wide variety of job roles.

Our apprenticeships

We recruit apprentices in a range of roles throughout the year.

Details of the apprenticeships we have available can be found on North East Jobs and the council jobs page.

Pre-apprenticeships

The council also offers learning and job opportunities for young people who, due to their personal circumstances, are finding it difficult to get an apprenticeship.

These opportunities are known as pre-apprenticeships and are aimed particularly at more vulnerable young people, such as those who have been in care.

Check out the council jobs and the North East Jobs website throughout the year for these opportunities.

Public sector apprenticeship target

We are required, by law, to report every year how we are doing in regards to achieving Government targets on employing apprentices.
