Our Offer to Apprentices

It doesn't matter what stage apprentices are at in their studies, what their goals are, what course they are studying or where they are thinking of taking their career – Careers and Enterprise can provide advice and support.

Apprentices are able to access all of our expert impartial and confidential employability advice on areas such as CV and application support, career planning, skills development and enterprise support. This can be used throughout your time with us at University of Salford and beyond, to help you further your career post apprenticeship.

Employability Skills

Throughout their apprenticeship, apprentices will be developing a wide range of core skills and attributes that are essential for the workplace. Employability skills are the 'soft' skills employers want candidates to demonstrate to show that they can work well in the organisation. We can help apprentices develop their employability skills throughout their apprenticeship programme.
