We offer a range of apprenticeship opportunities in a variety of occupations each year, giving people the chance to gain useful on-the-job experience and training. Apprentices can also work towards gaining nationally recognised qualifications such as a National Vocational Qualification (NVQ).
Durham County Council works alongside the National Apprenticeship Service which has made it easier for firms to attract and recruit apprentices in England through a free online recruitment system. The council is urging businesses to make the most of it.
The national system is the first stop for those looking for apprenticeships and allows vacancies for employees to be viewed and applied for nationally by thousands of candidates.
