What are Apprenticeships?

Apprenticeships are work-based training programmes that provide individuals with the skills needed to succeed in their role and develop their career within a business. This means apprentices can put their skills into practice daily at work, while also gaining a nationally recognised apprenticeship and being paid.

If you are looking to kickstart your career and are considering an apprenticeship, Tees Active can help and support you to gain valuable experience in the leisure sector.
