Combine employment and education with a high-quality apprenticeship and develop skills for life!

Choosing an apprenticeship allows you to study for a qualification at the same time as working. You’ll divide your time between the workplace and College. At Southern Regional College we have 35 apprenticeships at level 2 and level 3 and 18 higher level apprenticeships to choose from. We also work with many local employers who offer vacancies in a range of different industries.

In September 2023, The Department for the Economy announced the introduction of ‘All Age Apprenticeships’ which will provide opportunities for more people to embark on a career of their choice. This will mean the potential to create an additional 1,700 apprenticeship opportunities per year across Northern Ireland for those aged 25 and above, offering more career options for people of all ages.

Our apprenticeship lecturing staff are experts in their field and have many years of experience working in their chosen sectors. Plus, our fantastic real-world facilities, mean that you’ll be gaining the skills needed for your future career.

As employees, apprentices earn a wage and work alongside experienced staff to gain real work-life experience and skills on the job. And once you have finished your apprenticeship, you’ll have both a qualification and lots of experience. This will make you an attractive candidate to employers.

Whatever your ability level or ambition, you’re sure to find an apprenticeship that’s right for you.
