What kind of apprenticeship is right for me?

Most apprentices study an apprenticeship in either retail or business administration. These apprenticeships allow you to earn and learn, gaining up to five nationally recognised qualifications and valuable paid work experience, making you highly desirable to employers.

The programme lasts for 12 months, giving you plenty of time to achieve your diploma in retail or business administration. You will be paid and receive the same employment rights and treatment as any other member of staff.

These apprenticeships also allow you to gain essential English, maths and ICT qualifications – important in either retail or business administration.

You must have fluent spoken English skills. No formal qualifications are required; free training is available subject to conditions.

Types of apprenticeship

  • Retail – available at Westfield London and open to everyone locally who can easily commute.
  • Business administration – placements within the council open to H&F residents only.

Please also ask about catering and hospitality, care sector and construction apprenticeships.

We actively encourage H&F residents to apply.
