To apply for an apprenticeship, simply complete the application form. You will need an employer to complete your apprenticeship with. If you do not have an employer ready to take you on, please contact our Apprenticeship Hub on (01206) 712412 or email for further support on how to find an employer.
Student Information

Candidates must be over 16 years of age, not be in full time education and live in England. There are no set entry requirements; each Apprenticeship is different and will require a different set of skills, abilities and prior attainment.

To undertake an Apprenticeship, students must be employed with a contract of employment, therefore candidates should be work ready.

At Colchester Institute we have a dedicated Schools Transition Officer as well as an Apprenticeship Hub Team, who will provide students with options and support them throughout the course programme.
