At Craven College, we strongly believe that Apprenticeships are not only an invaluable first step onto a career ladder for young people but equally, an excellent opportunity for local businesses to grow and develop their own employees and create a more highly skilled workforce who can contribute to their future success.

If you are a small business, you may be looking for just one or two individuals to join your team and grow with you, whereas larger employers may be looking at implementing Apprenticeships schemes to maintain a flow of new talent to fit the needs of their development and succession strategies. In either instance, Craven College has many years of experience in offering high-quality Apprenticeship services to employers big or small and will tailor our approach to suit your needs.

Our highly experienced Apprenticeship team support employers right through from recruiting keen and enthusiastic local candidates to the achievement of their qualification. We will support you with advice on general employment and Apprentice conditions and visit you for review meetings every 12 weeks. An Apprenticeship Co-ordinator is always available to deal with any issue you may have and we guarantee a professional and prompt service.
