Ealing Apprenticeships

Starting an apprenticeship gives you the opportunity of a real job with hands-on experience, a salary so you can earn while you work, as well as learning as part of a course. This is different from other educational routes, such as university or traditional courses, as it gives you practical experience and you will have no debts to repay when you finish your course. At Ealing Council, we have an
apprenticeship team, who will be happy to help you find an apprenticeship, whether at Ealing Council or with a local employer.

  • Help with training and skills development
