Who can apply?

You can apply for our apprenticeships if you meet any of these criteria:
  • Live in Lambeth
  • Went to a Lambeth school or college within the last 5 years
  • Are receiving or have received Lambeth leaving care services
You must hold a British or European passport or have indefinite leave to remain in the UK.
We don’t have an upper age limit, but most of our apprenticeships are aimed at 16 to 24 year-olds starting out in their careers. We also have some higher level apprenticeships which are more suitable for older applicants and those with some prior experience.
You may not be able to undertake an apprenticeship in a subject and level that you have already completed.
You don’t need any formal qualifications to apply for many of our apprenticeships. We may ask you to take a short English and maths assessment to make sure you are at the right level for the apprenticeship qualification.
