The Everton Apprenticeship programme, in partnership with Riverside College, offers fantastic employment opportunities for Merseyside’s young people, supplemented by enriching, high quality education. The initiative offers opportunities for driven and passionate individuals who are keen to succeed in their chosen vocational area.
Although focusing primarily on the areas of Business and Sport since 2011, from August 2016 Everton Apprenticeships will be broadening its curriculum offer which will now extend to supporting job roles within Hospitality & Catering, Team Leading/Management and Customer Service.
The Everton Apprenticeship programme also supports the additional growth of our business and those of our employer partners. As well as helping you recruit exceptional new youngsters into your business via the power of the Everton brand, our programme can also support the continual professional development of your existing staff.
The programme will last a minimum of 12 months in which time apprentices will work to complete all components of the project including functional skills in Maths, English and IT, Employee Rights and Responsibilities and vocational led qualifications. Apprentices will also undertake a recognised qualification in a subject related to their job such as L2 NVQ Sport Activity Leadership, L2 NVQ Customer Service and L2 or L3 NVQ Business Administration as well as the opportunity to work towards additional qualifications in First Aid and FA coaching badges.
As well as the range of qualifications, apprentices will also receive on-going support, information, advice and guidance. Apprentices will have regular reviews with tutors and line managers as well as the opportunity to explore future career paths and personal development via employability sessions.
82% of Everton Apprenticeships successfully complete their full Apprenticeship framework compared to a national average of 72% and through our programme, we are able to offer unrivalled educational support and enrichment opportunities.
