Apprenticeships

For individuals


Why apply for an apprenticeship?

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

Does Newcastle City Council employ apprentices?

The council recruits apprentices in a range of occupations throughout the year. Council apprenticeships, can be found on North East jobs and the council job page.

Additional opportunities through Newcastle City Council

The council also offers learning and employment 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 webpage and the North East Jobs website throughout the year for these opportunities.
