Welcome to Apprenticeships at Blackburn College
Top 10 in England for Apprentice Success*
Apprenticeships allow you to earn while you learn and gain a nationally recognised qualification in the process. We work with over 3000 employers to ensure your success as an apprentice. Apprenticeships are designed with the help of employers and offer a structured programme that will coach you through the skills you need to be successful. An Apprenticeship is the perfect route if you already know what career you want. Remember—before you can start an Apprenticeship, you'll need to find a matching job with an employer.
Each apprenticeship will have its own unique set of entry requirements - depending on the level of the apprenticeship and the subject area. Please check a subject's course leaflet for more information.
From 2017 onwards, there is a brand new GCSE grading system being phased in. The current A* to G system will eventually be replaced with a numerical system - ranging from 9 (highest) to 1 (lowest). Learn more about the new GCSE grading system and how this will affect the way your results will look.
