Here at bright futures, we truly believe in building, not just a job, but a career with encouragement and support in helping you to succeed, and become a part of our incredible team. 

Our apprenticeships are programs that are offered to students from 18-25. In accordance with the UK government website, they combine working with studying to gain skills and knowledge in a specific job (GOV.UK). As an apprentice, you will be an employee, working alongside other support workers who will be there to help and support you in your learning. 

What Does An Support Worker Apprenticeship Involve?

Our Apprenticeship programmes involve supporting children and young adults in residential settings, providing a home and the care they need to support them in their lives. We believe we can inspire every child and adult to succeed in their lives, and this is where you would come in. You will be working with experienced staff to learn specific skills aiding you to fulfil your job requirements and learn everything you need to know. You will also get time for training or study during your working week (GOV.UK).
