About our apprenticeships
What you will 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
using new technology
Off the job, you spend time working towards a recognised apprenticeship standard.
Apprenticeships at Lewisham Council are 18 months. Apprenticeships can be different lengths, but they are all at least one year long.
We offer apprentices an annual salary starting at £21,808.
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
Lewisham Works can support you with CV support, interview preparation and job search.
