Apprenticeships are work-based programmes combining on the job training while completing a nationally recognised qualification. Northumbria Police offer apprenticeships across a variety of roles within the force, allowing you to explore your career aspirations while achieving a qualification.

Our most recent apprenticeship opportunities have included:

  • Customer Service

Where do I find apprenticeship opportunities?

You can find our current apprenticeship opportunities on the job search page.

Please note the opportunity will state ‘apprenticeship’ in the role title. Those that do not state ‘apprenticeship’ are not roles which are supported by the completion of a qualification.
