Leicester City Council runs an apprenticeship scheme for craft trades, which covers plastering, carpentry, painting and decorating, bricklaying, plumbing, electrics and gas servicing and maintenance.

Apprentices are recruited annually, and we usually advertise during April or May of each year, both in local newspapers and on the Jobs and Careers section of our website. There are normally between ten and fifteen vacancies each year.   


How long is the apprenticeship?

The course lasts four years. At the end of the course the craftsmen and craftswomen will have gained NVQ2 Maintenance Operatives and Domestic Installations (Electrics).
