Our apprenticeships

The Slough Academy banner

Apprenticeships have changed at Slough Borough Council!

To help support these changes, the council has launched The Slough Academy, which offers a new approach to apprenticeships, including for the first time, a range of profession based roles for all ages.

The Slough Academy oversees all of the council’s apprentices and the continuous professional development of existing and new staff to provide the best services it can for the residents of Slough, and, recruit new talent to bridge the skills gaps.

Talent of any age can apply for the council’s new apprenticeship training programmes, some of which offer degree level or post graduate qualifications in key professions, such as planning, social work, childcare, leisure and many more.

All apprenticeships come with paid jobs with competitive salaries and access to all the same benefits as other council colleagues. As well as gaining hands on experience, apprentices are given 20 per cent of time off-the-job to study and prepare for assessments.

As the academy grows so will the opportunities to join us, and build rewarding careers across a range of professions such as:

  • planning
  • housing
  • finance
  • education and childcare
  • transport
  • youth work and leisure.

New apprenticeships will be rolled out in 2019 with opportunities advertised on the council’s jobs page on this website.
