Apprenticeships supported by City of Bristol College:
Apprenticeships in and around Bristol
With an apprenticeship you start working for an employer in Bristol and the South West from day one. You need to find your own employer as part of your application for an apprenticeship, but we will help you with this. We were shortlisted for the AAC Construction Provider of the Year 2021. View our case studies for real life examples of successful apprentices.
Earn money and get ahead
Your apprenticeship won’t cost you anything, because it’s funded by the Government and your employer. You’ll earn a wage while developing specialist skills.Register interest
Apprenticeships in your chosen career
You’ll work alongside experienced workers who will help you learn the ropes. Many of our apprentices study at College towards a recognised qualification, which means you get a great mix of practical and theoretical training.
Through our specialist apprenticeship programmes you can:
- become skilled in a specialist occupation
- secure long-term earning potential and greater security
- develop the capability to progress in the workplace.
How to apply for an apprenticeship and current vacancies
As long as you are 16 or over, have lived in the EU for three years, you are eligible to apply for an apprenticeship.
The specific requirements will vary, depending on the apprenticeship. They tend to be a mixture of academic ability, enthusiasm and knowledge of your chosen area.
We work with our apprentice applicants to ensure that they are ready for interviews and apprenticeship placements, and when applicants are deemed job-ready, they are added to our Talent Pool and we will encourage employers to consider interviewing them.
If you are in our Talent Pool, we will keep you informed about vacancies that suit your skills and aspirations, so that you don’t miss any opportunities. We will always give you feedback from interviews and work with you along the way to ensure that you secure your apprenticeship.
We have also created an interview guidance booklet for apprentices (pdf) to help you be successful.
Specialist facilities for apprentices
As one of the largest providers of apprenticeships in the country, we have some of the best facilities and resources to boost your learning.
The support you need to succeed
We will support you throughout your apprenticeship programme by:
- Helping you find and apply for the job which is right for you
- Providing dedicated one-to-one support
- Advising you on your next steps once you have completed the apprenticeship successfully.
