Get started today – your way

There are three great ways you can begin your career through HTP Apprenticeship College. Choosing the right one for you depends on how ready you are to start work.

Get straight into work

Do you have a good idea of which career you want to start? Why not 'earn while you learn' and gain nationally-recognised qualifications with an HTP Apprenticeship – the best way to get straight into the workplace.

Get some experience first

Not sure what career is right for you? No problem. Try out working and gaining skills in a real business for up to 6 months and find out if it's right for you. If for any reason it isn't, we'll help you find another opportunity!

Get ready and confident
