Apprenticeships at Bucks County Council

Why become a BCC apprentice?

You will earn a salary while gaining valuable, hands-on experience. Plus, you’ll get to study for a nationally-recognised qualification, together with paid holidays.

Our apprenticeships generally last between 12-18 months, with time out of the workplace for study and assessments -so no evening or weekend study needed! During that time, you’ll also have our continual support and guidance.

We only ask that you’ve left full-time education and that you have the right to work in the UK.

What our apprentices are saying

 

Rafael (Human Resources Assistant Apprentice)

 

“I wanted to earn a salary while studying so this apprenticeship was ideal. I’m gaining confidence and professional responsibility- taking ownership of tasks myself. And because all the study is during work hours, it leaves my evenings and weekends free!”

Humah (Corporate Business Improvement Apprentice)

After completing an Intermediate Business apprenticeship with us, Humah has gone on to do an Advanced Business apprenticeship in another of our teams.

“My apprenticeship has led me to move around different service areas, while adapting to new skills and transferring them on from project to project. It has allowed me to take on more responsibilities, like running my own project along with the relevant documentation and governance processes”

Jennifer (Registration Service Apprentice)

“I completed A’ levels, didn’t want to go to University but wanted to keep learning and getting qualifications. I’m a practical person and like learning by being hands-on, so an apprenticeship was ideal.”

 Sophia (Equalities Apprentice)

“I wanted a job with lots of variety and opportunity to develop my skills and learn new ones. My apprenticeship has given me so much confidence in and outside of work, and I have been lucky enough to travel to places I would never have been otherwise!”

 Matt (Environmental Enforcement Apprentice)

“My apprenticeship is learning in a real work environment and I have no problem balancing my study and my work role. I’ve gained so much confidence and even been involved in the successful prosecution of fly-tippers!”
