Camden Apprenticeships

Apprenticeships are open to anyone aged 16 plus.

If you’re leaving school or college, you can earn while you learn.

Or if you’re in work and want to change career - or you’ve had a career break and want to get back into a job - an apprenticeship could be for you.

Construction apprenticeships

An apprenticeship is the best way to get into the construction industry and gain a recognised vocational qualification, leading to NVQ Level 2 or above in your chosen trade.

You’ll gain the skills, knowledge and practical experience you need to get into construction.

Sixth forms and colleges

students with results

Many Camden secondary schools have their own sixth forms, including the popular LaSWAP Sixth Form Centre. Camden is also home to Westminster Kingsway College, which is one of London’s top further education colleges.

On 7 February 2022, Ofqual announced a package of support for students taking GCSE, AS and A-levels in summer 2022 to help ensure greater fairness to students whose education has been disrupted by the pandemic. This includes more generous grading this year to provide a safety net for students whose classes have been disrupted by the pandemic.

Camden Careers and Connexions service

Camden Careers and Connexions service offers information, advice and guidance on education, work and training – so you can find opportunities that are right for you.

We're offering 'virtual drop-ins' for young people who want to talk to an adviser about jobs, education, training or apprenticeships over the phone - as well as face-to-face sessions with a personal adviser, which are available by appointment.

Camden Supported Internships

Do you have a learning disability and / or disability, an education, health and care plan and are in your final year of school or college? 

If yes, and you really want to work, but you need intensive on-the-job support and are not yet travel-trained, a Supported Internship could be right for you.

We offer a structured study programme, based mostly in a host business for one year, enabling young people aged 16 to 24 to get paid work at the end.

We have a range of Supported Internships available in Camden.
