Apprenticeships & Placements

We offer apprenticeships in the following sectors; Business and Accounting, Construction, Digital Technologies, Engineering, Hairdressing, Hospitality and Science. York College provides a free apprentice recruitment support service whereby we help advertise your vacancy, hold regular Open Events where we promote apprenticeship vacancies and invite you along to talk with potential candidates and carry out the initial sift of applications to ensure that you only receive suitable candidates for selection to interview.

Work placements
are the ideal way to introduce young people to the realities of working life. For businesses, they can provide an insight into what young people can offer, whilst helping you to train and potentially recruit your next generation of employees. We offer short work placements of 35 hours (five working days) and longer placements up to 315 hours (45 working days). Both placement options are flexible and can be undertaken in one, or in longer blocks upon negotiation.
