Are you 16-24 years old and wanting to start you career?

We understand what it takes to train you in the skills you will need to succeed in an Apprenticeship and secure employment at the end of it.

If you are a woman over 24 years old and want to do an apprenticeship, please visit our Women's Project section.

What is an Apprenticeship?

An apprenticeship is a real job with training that will give you the opportunity to earn a salary, gain a recognised qualification and valuable workplace skills and experience.

It is a year long work paid placement combined with training at City Gateway.  

All of the qualifications that we provide are nationally recognised for example:

  • Business Administration NVQ Level 2/3
  • Customer Service NVQ Level 2/3

We will give you the skills that you need, the guidance to impress at an interview and full support throughout your Apprenticeship.

All of our Apprentices have to undertake pre-employment training with City Gateway before starting their Apprenticeship, so that you are in the best position to succeed on your Apprenticeship.

Over 75% of our Apprentices secure permanent employment at the end of their Apprenticeship and we support everyone who doesn't to find permanent employment.
