Training and recruitment

Apprenticeships are work-based training programmes designed for people over 16 with no upper age limit. Apprenticeships utilise a mix of on and off the job training put together to give your workforce the valuable skills your business needs along with a nationally recognised qualification.

Apprenticeships can range from entry level through to degree level and the majority of courses can be delivered in the workplace to ensure minimal disruption to your business.

Dudley College will help assist employers right from the start, discussing the right training programme, completing an organisational needs analysis, promoting vacancies free of charge and undertaking all initial assessments of the learner.
