What is an apprenticeship at Northumberland County Council?


An apprenticeship is a real job where you learn, gain experience, and get paid. By the end of your apprenticeship, you will have the right skills and knowledge needed for your chosen career. Whether taking your first steps on the career ladder, upskilling or searching for a career change - there is an apprenticeship for everyone.

Apprenticeships are structured training programmes that give you the opportunity to gain on the job experience whilst working towards a recognised apprenticeship standard. They help you gain the skills and knowledge you need to succeed in your chosen industry. The Northumberland County Council apprenticeship programme allows people to work for the council to develop their skills and knowledge whilst gaining a qualification.

All apprentices will:
• Be employed by the council
• Earn a wage
• Follow a training programme
• Receive both on and off the job training
• Develop their skills to ensure they can do the job well

We are offering:
• Opportunity to progress into a fixed term/permanent role
• Apprenticeship wage, rising to national minimum wage after 365 days
• 25 Days annual leave, including bank holidays
• A wide range of staff benefits
• Access to the Local Government Pension Scheme
• Access to high quality training
• A year’s free membership to the Totum Student Discount Card
