Truro and Penwith College: Think you know Apprenticeships? Think again…

Truro and Penwith College offers more than 40 apprenticeship programmes and we continue to expand our provision to provide the skills and experience Cornish employers are looking for.

Apprenticeships have always been seen as a fantastic start to a vocational career in areas such as construction and trade occupations, motor vehicle and hair and beauty. This continues to be the case as our students benefit from not only learning from industry experts but doing so in first-class, state-of-the-art facilities.

Perhaps not as well known is that our range of outstanding apprenticeship programmes is not limited to these vocational areas. Truro and Penwith College apprentices are starting their careers in a wide range of other areas such as becoming fully qualified AAT accountants, developing software for a range of applications including space and satellite control, marketing some of Cornwall’s top brands, starting their nursing careers in Cornwall’s NHS, and gaining qualifications up to degree-level.

Apprenticeships provide the perfect blend of classroom learning and practical workplace experience for anyone to start their career and are available to anyone over the age of 16.

Quality is always the focus at Truro and Penwith College, as we work to provide quality careers with Cornwall’s top employers. The latest data published by the Department for Education (DfE) places the college in the top 10 of all college providers of apprenticeships in the UK for learner achievement and one of the top in the South West for employer satisfaction.
