West Berkshire Council

What is an apprenticeship?

We are looking for people who want to bring fresh ideas and innovation to the council and who care about their community.

We think a great way to get the best talent working for us is via an apprenticeship.

An apprenticeship is a job that combines practical training with study so you'll get paid to learn. What could be better?

An apprentice will:

  • work alongside experienced staff
  • gain job-specific skills
  • earn a wage and get generous employee benefits such as holiday pay
  • be given time for study related to their role (the equivalent of one day a week)

We have apprenticeship opportunities in most of our departments, some examples include:

  • HR Support: level 3
  • HR Consultant: level 5
  • Payroll Administrator: level 3
  • Adult Care: levels 2 and 3
  • Social Work Degree and Occupational Therapy Degree
  • Teaching Assistants and Early Years Educators
  • Data Analyst
  • Business Administrator
  • Paralegal

And a wide range of others!
