What is an Apprenticeship?

An apprenticeship is a job that accompanies a guided development programme (at least 20% off-the-job training), for a minimum of 12 months, and is an opportunity for individuals to gain practical experience, whilst studying towards qualifications.

 Apprenticeships are ideal for school leavers, existing members of staff, or an experienced person looking to change career or develop further.

"Imperial College’s apprenticeship programmes are designed to build a talent pipeline for our professional, operational and technical roles. They offer academic study alongside work experience to either prepare people for their future careers, or to build on existing knowledge for those already working at the College. Apprenticeship opportunities support our strategic objective to engage with local schools and communities.  We are keen to develop our current skills base, whilst attracting high calibre candidates with great potential, who may not have considered the range of professional, technical and operational roles available within the Higher Education sector."
