How To Recruit An Apprentice

Blackburn College has built an excellent reputation for delivering high quality apprenticeship frameworks across a variety of sectors. We pride ourselves on our excellent apprenticeship success rates and the work we do with employers and learners in industry. We are constantly working to offer new and exciting career paths by introducing new apprenticeship frameworks to meet increasing demand from businesses. 

If you are interested in taking on an apprentice, it would be worthwhile contacting the Apprenticeship team to discuss training programmes available and any particular requirements you may have. We will need to check your details covering health and safety in the workplace and equal opportunities as we have to ensure all people undertaking an apprenticeship are in a safe and secure working environment.

Can I get help recruiting a suitable apprentice?

Yes. Once we receive a completed application form, we will invite applicants to college to undertake an initial assessment and interview. We will provide them with more information, answer any questions and inform them as to whether they have been accepted on to their chosen apprenticeship. We will look at the employer vacancies we have and we will discuss these with the potential apprentices. We will send applicants CVs out to employers so they can shortlist applicants and arrange interviews.

We have produced some comprehensive documents about Apprenticeships which can be downloaded below:
