Home / Apprenticeships


An apprenticeship is a real job with on-site and college-based training to give you the necessary trade skills to succeed.

If you are aged 16 or over, you can complete a fully funded apprenticeship so the qualification is free to gain. The only thing your employer will need to pay is your wage so you can gain a qualification and earn money at the same time. Your employer will pay you at least national minimum wage for a first year apprentice and after the first year the rate of pay is dependent on your age.

Below is a quote from a learner who completed a course with Coleg QS.

“Thanks for your help and support. I would not hesitate to recommend your courses to any of my work colleagues. All the best for the future.”

Paul Senyk, AM2 Learner
