About our apprenticeships

Find out more about doing an apprenticeship with us, including the benefits you get.

What you'll learn

Apprenticeships are a mixture of on-the-job and off-the-job training. On the job, you learn key transferable skills, such as:

  • working in teams

  • problem solving

  • communication

  • using new technology.

Off the job, you spend time working towards a recognised apprenticeship standard.

Apprenticeship length

Apprenticeships can be different lengths, but they are all at least one year long.



We offer apprentices an annual salary starting at £19,656.


If you are aged 18 and over in the first year of your apprenticeship, you can get a 30% discount on travelcards and bus and tram season tickets. Apply for your discount from Transport for London.


Our tutors and staff will offer your support throughout your apprenticeship. After you have finished your apprenticeship, you’ll be in a strong position to move into permanent employment.

After your apprenticeship

We will invite you to an annual graduation ceremony, where you will get a certificate from the Mayor of Lewisham.
