There are many different apprenticeships that our students can choose to follow if they so wish to. These apprenticeships range from business and finance, sport and leisure to construction and engineering. Depending on the apprenticeship, and the level, the requirements (both education and personal) will vary – it is important that students check these carefully before applying.

The world of work is ever changing and it is vitally important that you are able to provide students with the most up to date information about the career field(s) that they are interested in.

Specific information about the North East would suggest that there are 4 growth areas in the region; advanced manufacturing, digital, energy and health and life sciences.
