We will work with you to find a suitable employer-earn while you learn! Stockport College has been offering apprenticeships for many years, and works with some of the best employers in the area. Apprenticeships are a superb way to learn on the job while earning a wage.
Our team will work with you to find an employer and will help you to develop your CV and interview skills to ensure that you secure your dream job. During your programme a specialist training officer will come and visit you and lead you through the modules on the framework you are studying, whilst also teaching you during your time in college.
You can start your apprenticeship anytime once you have left school, and as there is a high demand for apprenticeships we advise that you apply as soon as possible.
As an apprentice you will enrol on a NVQ course and spend at least 30 hours a week working for an employer and their experienced staff, building up real job skills. You will usually spend one day a week in Stockport College.
We offer three levels of apprenticeship
Traineeship with Manchester Airport Group (pre apprenticeship)
Intermediate level apprenticeship (equivalent to 5 GCSE passes)
Advanced level apprenticeship (equivalent to two A level passes)
Traineeships are a great choice if you do not have the right skills to start an apprenticeship. We work in partnership with Manchester Airport Group and we have a 12 week traineeship programme; offering a mix of placements with real employers at Manchester Airport and work skills training in our state of the art Airport Academy that is based within the airport itself.
Our dedicated team will build your confidence and abilities and put you in a great position to progress on to an apprenticeship or start working for one of Manchester Airport’s world class businesses.
