Earn while you learn


Apprenticeships are the perfect way to gain on-the-job experience, all whilst earning a wage. Apprentices benefit from gaining a qualification that is not only focused on their chosen career and industry, but is also hands-on and tailored to a working environment.

If you’re the kind of person who likes to learn by doing, and you’re keen to start earning a bit of money, then an apprenticeship in Peterborough could be the perfect further education solution for you.

Here at City College Peterborough you will find a supportive environment that helps you to progress and make the most of your apprenticeship. From the word ‘go’ we will help you find an apprenticeship placement that is right for you, and your ambitions. From there on in you will receive continued guidance and support from your tutor at City College Peterborough.

We work with over 250 businesses in and around Peterborough, to help provide students with a huge range of apprenticeship and working opportunities whilst they are at the College. Have a browse of the apprenticeship courses available here at City College Peterborough:

The pay rate for an apprentice depends upon numerous factors, but the support team at City College Peterborough will be more than happy to explain things in detail. It often depends upon what level apprenticeship you will be taking, for example you may be looking at an Intermediate Level Apprenticeship or a Higher Level Apprenticeship. There are many different options available, so please do get in touch with us today.

If you are taking part in an apprenticeship, your employer will support your training and pay you at least the minimum wage for your age bracket, which is:

– £3.50 per hour. This rate is for apprentices aged 16 to 18 and those aged 19 or over who are in their first year. All other apprentices are entitled to the National Minimum Wage for their age.

You can find out more about the current national minimum wage for apprentices on the Gov.uk website.
