Pre-apprenticeships are a great way to take the next step towards getting into the industry of your choice. In most cases, people choose the pre-apprenticeship before an apprenticeship to prepare them for the working environment.

Every pre-apprenticeship includes:

  • Initial training to give you a head start and a competitive edge when finding employment
  • One to one support with coach to help you find apprenticeship vacancies
  • Employability sessions to improve your CV, job applications and interview techniques
  • Student services to help you access financial support and careers advice and guidance
  • Access to vacancies with Southwark College’s employer partners
  • English, maths, digital and vocational training to improve your application, if required.

Pre-apprenticeships are open to both young people and adults. They can also be taken as part of the Sector-based Work Academy Programmes to support you to gain access to your chosen industry.
