We offer apprenticeships through Access Industry. 

Apprenticeships offer a different kind of educational experience to traditional BTECs and A Levels, allowing you to ‘learn while you earn’. When you sign up to an apprenticeship, you are employed by an organisation and learn both ‘on the job’ within the workplace, and via our online learning platform with support from industry specialists – and you earn a salary as you would with regular employment. 

Studying with us comes with a number of benefits including courses taught by industry experts with years of direct, hands-on experience in their field, full use of Access Creative College’s incredible facilities and access to a national network of like-minded creatives so you can build professional relationships throughout your time with us. 

We offer the following Apprenticeships:
