The Bristol Apprenticeship Scheme
We’re recruiting apprentices to start work in June. Applications are open from Monday 14 March.
Applications will close on Monday 4 April.
Applications will open again in July for apprenticeships starting in September. Follow @BCCApprentice on Twitter to keep up to date with the recruitment process and find out what apprentices are up to.
This scheme has apprenticeships in different areas, including:
- business admin
- customer service
- sports coaching
- health and social care
You’ll attend college one day a week and work towards a qualification during your apprenticeship. You can also go on Bristol City Council training courses during your apprenticeship to get more experience.
We have a mentoring programme that is part of the apprenticeship scheme. You’ll get a mentor who is a former apprentice or an apprentice in the second year of their apprenticeship. They’ll give you advice based on their experience as an apprentice.
