We’re keen to open up new routes in to jobs at the National Trust, that’s why we’re continually growing the number and range of apprenticeships we offer, helping individuals earn while they learn and contribute to the care of our special places.
Our Level 2, 3 and 4 apprenticeships are open to everyone and offer real paid work based learning opportunities that will help set the course for a future career in the cultural heritage sector and beyond. We don’t always require candidates to have prior experience or lots of qualifications to apply, however it should be noted that all apprenticeships require candidates to gain a qualification in English and Maths where they don’t already hold these, which we will support you with. All of our apprentices are assigned a dedicated line manager and in some instances a separate mentor also. You will be welcomed into our teams and expected to operate alongside other staff.
Apprenticeship opportunities vary in length, challenge and structure, depending on the occupation you’re training for. They’ll always last for at least 12 months, but some may run for longer. All apprenticeships involve off-the-job training, supported by a separate training provider and the amount of the off-the-job training varies depending on the apprenticeship and could involve the training provider coming to your work place, you attending college or attending some of our internal courses. While we can’t guarantee a permanent role at the end of your apprenticeship, we do encourage everyone to apply for roles within the Trust and will encourage and support you to look for suitable positions
