Barrhead Travel is a proud supporter of Modern Apprenticeships. In fact, we’ve been offering young people
the chance to grow a prosperous career with us since we opened our doors back in 1975.
We now take on approximately 100 new apprentices each year across all areas of our business. From sales to administration and from marketing to IT, the variety and opportunity on offer really is limitless. Combining
study with on-the-job learning, we offer an exciting alternative to classroom style training and provide the
foundation for a successful career in a financially secure and growing business.
Our training programmes are carefully designed to bring out the best in young people who are passionate
about a career in travel. We work closely with local schools, colleges and government agencies to collaborate
on stimulating and rewarding courses for our apprentices. Every single apprentice will have their own mentor
and Personal Development Plan to help achieve individual goals and ambitions.
We recognise that our apprentices are the future of our business. Bringing fresh and innovative ideas
to the table is encouraged and many have progressed to become managers, running their own store or
department. Even within our board of directors, you’ll find several who started their Barrhead Travel
careers as apprentices and have grown with the business.
