Apprenticeships in Bristol have increased from just 900 starts in 2005/6 to 3,390 in 2013. These Office for National Statistics figures give you an idea of just how popular apprenticeships have become in the capital of the South West, with real growth in several industries for those looking for an opportunity to learn and earn.
Traditionally, Bristol developed as a port and created for itself a significant reputation in the marine industries and ship production and technology have played a huge part in the city's history. There is still work available in the marine sector but these days you are just as likely to find employment within the aerospace, finance or creative industries that have called Bristol their home. Tourism continues to be a strong economic performer for the area, construction too, but the largest employer is the public sector – opening the doorway to a very wide range and number of apprenticeships.
