The Knowsley Apprentice programme is back – kick start your new career today!

by Guy Murphy

The popular Knowsley Apprentice programme is back with over 50 new opportunities open for applicants.

Apprenticeships are available across a range of sectors and roles, including in trades such as plumbing, joinery and electrical, as well as roles in teaching support, IT and business administration.

The opportunities are available now as many young people are finishing their full-time education and are considering their next steps.

The Knowsley Apprentice programme enables young people to work, continue their education and earn a wage while doing so.

Apprentices are trained to NVQ level 3 in their chosen subject, and many have the opportunity to secure a permanent job at the end of their apprenticeship placement.

The Knowsley Apprentice programme has helped thousands of young Knowsley people into apprentice positions across Knowsley and the Liverpool City Region. Many have gone onto successful careers as a result of their apprenticeship.
