Eden launches new apprenticeship scheme

Eden is recruiting 20-25 apprentices to join their team!

These lucky people will learn an occupation through a combination of working at Eden and taking part in off-the-job training and development delivered with Cornwall College. The apprentices will work across six teams.

The new Apprenticeship scheme is being run in partnership with The Cornwall College Group and its specialist Rural Environment arm Duchy College. The programme will see the paid apprentices working across a range of different teams including horticulture, vehicle maintenance, hospitality, the visitor experience, media and creative design.

The Apprenticeships are open to motivated people aged 16 and over with any level of qualification, who are looking for a structured opportunity to learn and earn at the same time.

Eden’s Apprenticeships will be full time, for a period of up to two years. Apprentices will be paid and expected to work 40 hours a week, which will generally be four days a week at Eden and one day in off-the-job training either at the College or on the Eden site.

Open day, 17 May 2014

People who are thinking of applying or would like to know more can come along to an open day at Eden on Saturday 17 May 2014 from 10am to 2pm. The event is free to attend and will be held in Eden’s Gallery.

There will be an opportunity to meet members of the Eden and College teams to find out more about the work and courses. Steven Gilbert MP will help to launch this event.
