Camden Apprenticeships (Camden Council)

The Camden Apprenticeships team works in partnership with local employers and training providers to offer Apprenticeships for local people. We provide tailored support through from the application process to completing the apprenticeship with the employer. We also organise free training to apprentices (in addition to that offered by their apprenticeship training provider) in a range of essential skills such as professional writing, minute taking and presentations, enabling apprentices to perform duties to a higher standard and with greater confidence within the workplace.
