Study Programme

NLTG's Study Programme is an exciting pre-Apprenticeship course. It aims to help you if you are not ready, or able, to directly enter an Apprenticeship. It offers two full-time routes to 16-18 year olds – Employability Skills and Traineeships.

Both are delivered by their expert team from their brand new centre in Bury and will help you develop the skills needed to get you ready for the workplace, further learning or an Apprenticeship. They will also help you gain a maths and/or English qualification if you don’t have GCSEs at grade 4-9.

Adult learners


As an Adult Apprentice you will advance your skills and knowledge of an industry through studying an Apprenticeship while you work. You're able to do it within your current job or you can apply for Apprenticeship vacancies if you are currently unemployed.

Apprenticeships are nationally recognised qualifications available at a range of levels. If you are currently employed, an Adult Apprenticeship allows you to develop new skills, experience and abilities through on-the-job training.
