With an apprentice salary starting at around £97 per week, apprentices can earn money whilst learning on the job and spending one day a week at college.

Newcastle-under-Lyme College works closely with more than 400 local employers across Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire and South Cheshire to provide apprenticeships in a wide range of subject areas.

Starting an apprenticeship is the first step in your career but you don’t have to do it alone.  From day one an assessor will work with you to agree a learning plan, visit you at work and be there every step of the way to ensure you succeed.  You’ll also get access to the same College facilities as our full-time learners including our Learning Resource Centre (LRC) and assistance from our team of Student Welfare Officers.
