Apprenticeships With Transport for London

Transport for London are the integrated transport authority responsible for meeting Mayor Sadiq Khan's strategy and commitments on transport in London. TfL run the day-to-day operation of the Capital's public transport network and manage London's main roads.

With so many career pathways and training opportunities available, TfL will help you transform your future and they'll be with you all the way. TfL’s apprenticeships are nationally recognised, and they offer professional qualifications at the completion of a programme. Their apprentices are their employees and they get a range of benefits. Moreover, they can secure a permanent position upon successful completion of their apprenticeship.

"The best thing was the ability to gain on-the-job experience and a degree at the same time. I had the option of going to university, however this opportunity was a no-brainer. Avoiding the fees and getting a degree – who would turn that down?"
