Apprenticeships are open to everyone

We mean it. A Higher Apprenticeship might not be the most obvious step if you already work at Barclays, but our programme could be just the challenge you’re looking for. Open to colleagues of any age and background, this is the chance to get a degree or a professional qualification, and to train as a specialist in a new area. You don’t even need experience – just the potential to go far with us.
