Are you looking for an opportunity to earn money whilst gaining a national qualification?

Why not consider an apprenticeship at Cheshire East Council and  join the A* Apprenticeship Scheme?

We have vacancies across our services in a wide range of careers and you can start any time of the year.

Being an apprentice with the Council you really do get the best of both worlds. You can study for a new qualification and at the same time develop your career and experience of work.

If you’re not afraid to commit yourself to a combination of training and study then an apprenticeship may be the right option for you.

To get a taste of what roles are on offer see our scheme below.

Our scheme

Our Apprenticeship Scheme will provide you with work-based training and education.

Apprenticeships are available from level 2 (GCSE standard)  up to  level 6 (degree), depending on relevant qualifications and experience in a range of different subjects, including business administration, finance, human resources, IT,  legal, health and social care and horticulture

Many of the schools across Cheshire East Council also recruit apprentices too as teaching assistants and teachers. 

All our apprentices receive age appropriate national minimum wage.

All of our current vacancies are available to view on the National Apprenticeship Service website.For more information, please email
