Junior Apprenticeships

Junior Apprenticeships

Junior Apprenticeships are a unique new way to learn and start training for a future career for 14-16 year olds.

During Year 10 and 11 young people on a Junior Apprenticeship programme come to college, instead of school, five days a week during term-time.

On a Junior Apprenticeship you can develop knowledge, skills and gain industry qualifications for your chosen future career. Alongside this you will study English and Maths and continue to sit GCSE exams in these subjects which are important for any future career.

These unique programmes, jointly funded by Cardiff City Council, Cardiff schools and Cardiff and Vale College, offer a brand new route for young people to train for a future career. Our aim is to make you employable and ready to progress onto your next step – a higher level course or apprenticeship in your chosen career at the age of 16.

Junior Apprenticeships are offered in a range of areas including:

Hair and Beauty, Construction, Automotive, Public Services, Catering and Hospitality.

How can I apply?
To apply you must speak to your Head of Year in school or lead person where you are currently registered to learn. The College is unable to take direct applicationsfor Junior Apprenticeships. All applicants must be referred through school or where you are currently registered to learn.
