Apprenticeship team

What is an apprenticeship?

You will learn at work, get real on the job experience whilst getting a paid wage. You will have the chance of progression whilst developing your knowledge through qualifications. Your future prospects will be good both in gaining skills and furthering your education. There are a number of elements to each Apprenticeship and this is called the Framework. 

 Each Apprenticeship framework has three main strands:

  • A competence based element

  • A technical element

  • A skills element

Anyone living in England, over 16 and not in full time education can apply.

Benefits of being an apprentice at Dudley Council:

  • earn a salary
  • get paid holidays
  • receive training
