Apprenticeships - Camden Rise

Education, training and work


An apprenticeship is a paid job which provides both work experience and the chance to study towards a nationally recognised qualification. We have a wide range of subject areas to suit different interests. There are opportunities available at different levels – some apprenticeships suit complete beginners but there are options for people seeking more complex and demanding roles as well. 

Camden Apprenticeships service is open to you if:

  • you’re a Camden resident, former Camden secondary school student or Camden care leaver
  • you’re aged 16 or above.

Many employers now offer apprenticeships with flexible hours to suit your outside commitments. Training providers also offer support for those with additional needs.

King’s Cross Construction Skills Centre

An apprenticeship with King’s Cross Construction Skills Centre (KXCSC) means you’ll spend part of your time studying and the rest on construction sites, gaining practical experience and applying your skills in the real world of construction.

We offer a variety of training courses available free to unemployed local residents.

At KXCSC, in partnership with our training provider College of North West London, we offer construction training:

  • Pre-apprenticeship level 1 in multi-skills
  • Level 2 diplomas in plumbing, electrical Installation, carpentry and joinery

The training is available to Camden and Islington residents aged 16 to 18 and 19 plus.

In addition to the above courses, KXCSC helps 16 to 24 year-old local residents get into apprenticeships in a variety of trades from steel fixing to site management and many more, in and around Camden and on the new King's Cross development.
