Apprentices and apprenticeships 

Information about finding and supporting apprentices for large and small employers is available from the Newcastle-under-Lyme College campus of the Newcastle and Stafford College Group (NSCG). The college provides expert advice, guidance and support on all aspects of work-based learning including: apprenticeships, traineeships, bespoke training and professional development.  A dedicated Apprenticeship Hub team are on hand to support regional employers with the recruitment of apprentices in a variety of roles and sectors. Did you know that an apprentice can be a new recruit or it could be a person already working in your business. Apprenticeships are open to anyone regardless of age (16+).
