Apprenticeships

Steve Willis Training Centres are specialists in Gas, Plumbing and Electrical Apprenticeships.

Our apprenticeships offer the perfect way to learn a trade - a mix of on the job training with an employer and practical and classroom sessions at our two modern, well equipped training centres in Sussex and Hampshire.  We have over 20 years’ experience, and our professional trainers have worked in the industry and will guide and support you throughout your apprenticeship.

Class sizes have been reduced to maintain safe social distancing, and this means that as well as face to face contact we have now built some remote learning into our Apprenticeship Programmes.  

There's no upper age limit for apprenticeships, and you'll earn while you learn. Employers are supported by the new government funding arrangements - you can find more details on our Information for Employers page.

Covid-19 Secure Training

Apprenticeship Training is Covid-19 secure and delivered in a safe working environment. 

Class sizes have been reduced to maintain safe social distancing, and this means that as well as face to face contact we have now built some Remote Learning into our Apprenticeship Programmes.

When apprentices are joining training remotely we monitor attendance just as if they are in the classroom and notify employers of any absence. We also safeguard those attending remotely as much as those who are in the centre. 

We have issued apprentices with a checklist for Remote Learning, and we are making sure things run smoothly by staying in regular contact with employers and learners and asking for feedback.
