Cornwall Apprenticeships

The Cornwall Apprenticeship Campaign promotes the benefits of apprenticeships to businesses across Cornwall and Isles of Scilly.

The Cornwall Apprenticeship campaign promotes the benefits of apprenticeships to businesses across Cornwall and Isles of Scilly. 

It is a partnership between the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Skills Hub and is part-funded by the European Social Fund.

An apprenticeship is a real job that combines working with studying to gain skills, knowledge and experience in a specific role. There are various levels and types of apprenticeships available, right up to degree and master’s level and Apprenticeships can also be used to upskill existing members of your team. 

Cornwall Apprenticeships includes a new website, real-time listings of apprentice vacancies, case studies and free advice and support to help businesses discover how apprenticeships can boost skills and business performance.

Apprenticeship Ambassadors are employers who have witnessed first-hand the economic and social benefits of apprenticeships to their businesses and industries.  They are also passionate about the career opportunities Apprenticeships provide to individuals, especially young people.
