Apprenticeships are real jobs, alongside real qualifications. Apprentices develop the practical skills to go further in their careers and earn as they learn, whilst employers benefit because they get access to tailored skillsets, fresh ideas and can recruit from a diverse pool of talented students. Today’s Apprenticeships are available in a wide range of industries and professions, from Level 2 up to degree level, and play a huge role in our region.
Barnsley College offers over 70 apprenticeship programmes in a wide range of industry sectors including Accountancy; Business; Catering and Hospitality; Childcare and Education Professions; Construction; Computing and Digital; Engineering; Hair and Beauty; Health, Science and Social Care Professions; Leadership and Management; Sport; Travel and Tourism; and Warehousing and Logistics.
