An apprenticeship is an ideal way to get out in to the world of work and do a job while earning real money!

If this idea appeals to you, you’ve come to the right place. We are the largest provider of apprenticeships in Cornwall and Devon with over 1,700 apprentices in training. We offer a wide variety of apprenticeships in over 42 vocational areas from Accountancy to Plumbing. See the full list in Apprenticeship Programmes.

Apprenticeships are available to anyone over the age of 16 who is employed. You will need to be committed, motivated and have a willingness to learn new things whilst you study.
As an apprentice, you will:

  • Earn real wages.
  • Gain new qualifications & industry standard training.
  • Gain new knowledge and skills.
  • Gain experience that will give you a competitive edge.
  • Get a start into a new and rewarding career.
  • Meet new people and develop new opportunities.

An apprentice is employed from day one and will learn in the workplace but will also attend College usually one day a week depending on your chosen vocation. Your employer must be willing to support you while you train and we can discuss the requirements with them. Otherwise, new apprentice opportunities are posted and regularly updated in the Current Vacancies section. If you are struggling to find an employer to support you, please contact us and we may be able to help.

"I employ over 20 builders and work for some of the major contractors in the South West. Most of my team trained with Cornwall College, they provide the best training around."
