How apprenticeships work
Our apprenticeships take place at our Falmouth site and will lead to you to achieving nationally recognised qualifications as well as a bright new career here in Cornwall. Your training will normally be delivered in partnership with local training providers and will meet the new National Occupational Apprentice Standards through vocational and classroom-based learning over a four-year programme.
