In a time of considerable change to the way apprenticeships are delivered and funded, the Service is planning to establish a programme that meets the needs of Surrey County Council as a major employer and similarly other employers in the County. The post-holder will need to be flexible and responsive to change in an evolving sector.
All apprenticeships are currently being delivered remotely due to the Covid-19 pandemic. When possible, courses will return to our learners' workplace locations.
This post is based at our Woking Adult Learning Centre (although all staff are currently working from home). Travel within Surrey to our other centres and learner work placements will be a necessity, so the post- holder will be a required car user.
