Sandwell College has a wide range of apprenticeships designed for young people aged between 16 and 24 years old, with results improving year on year and significantly above national averages, so employers see great benefits too!


Apprenticeships for 16 to 18-year-olds are fully funded, while assisted funding is available for 19+ apprentices, depending on eligibility.
