UK Apprenticeships

Your apprenticeship works towards a recognised qualification, along with English and Maths.

About the Apprenticeships

Our Apprentice schemes vary from 12-18 month programmes where you will learn the skills, and develop knowledge about the environment of your department.
Once in the department you will develop additional people skills, great communication, and pick up additional ways to help you perform even better in your role. The roles are challenging as you will be expected to both work and study hard. We will however give you all the time and support that you need to succeed.

After the qualification is gained

After a student has passed their Apprenticeship course, there may be the opportunity for a permanent role. Many of our past students have continued at Acorn after their apprenticeships; some have even climbed the ladder and moved into senior and management roles, through continued hard work and determination.

So what's in it for me?
