How much will it cost?
Did you know the Government is offering free training at work under the heavily subsidised Adult Apprenticeship programme?
Even if you’ve been in work with the same employer for many years, you can still take advantage of our free, on the job, adult Apprenticeships at Blackburn College. So the answer is that it will cost you and your employer nothing!
What qualification will I gain?
You will gain a range of work based qualifications including a nationally recognised level 2 or 3 qualification and key skills in English and Maths (some individuals may be exempt from the Key Skills Element).
There are two levels of Apprenticeship available:
