Apprenticeships with Southwark businesses

There are a wide variety of apprenticeships available with local businesses. The council has developed a Southwark Apprenticeship Standard, which sets out our standard for quality local apprentices. Businesses and employers who have signed up to the Southwark Apprenticeship Standard offer high quality apprenticeships based on four key areas:

  • secure employment (contract of at least 12 months)
  • fair pay (with payment of the London Living Wage as the gold standard)
  • quality training provision
  • mentoring and support

Standard employers come in most sectors and sizes, offering something for everyone wanting to earn while they learn.

We’re signing up new employers all the time and post new vacancies regularly. You can find out more about the latest opportunities and there may be additional apprenticeship vacancies.
