Want to train and develop alongside industry experts in a paid, hands-on role? A FirstGroup Apprenticeship will give you the grounding you need to kick off a fantastic career.
Here, you’ll be an integral part of our business and a valued part of the team. Apprentices learn essential skills working alongside industry experts while studying for your chosen apprenticeships. It’s a great way to get qualified and take the first step towards an exciting future. And once the Apprenticeship’s finished, your development will continue: we’ll help you blaze a trail within our fast-evolving business.
We offer a range of Apprenticeships within both our Rail and Bus businesses. Rest assured that all our training meets nationally recognised standards. There’s a wide range of programmes on offer through South Western Railway (SWR), Great Western Railway (GWR) and TransPennine Express (TPE), which cover everything from Engineering to Business and Leadership Apprenticeships. Meanwhile, First Bus offers a variety of technical programmes which will see you become a qualified bus technician or work within our shared services in areas of business administration or HR in Leeds.
