Apprenticeships at the Eden Project

We offer a range of apprenticeships at the Eden Project, run in partnership with Cornwall College, and Truro and Penwith College.

We'll shortly be recruiting for apprenticeships that start in September.


Our apprenticeship opportunities

An Eden apprenticeship is the chance for talented, enthusiastic and passionate individuals to work at the Eden Project while studying for a nationally recognised qualification.  

As well as enjoying expert tuition from Cornwall College’s and Truro and Penwith College's expert trainers, apprentices benefit from working with the Eden's team members in their chosen area.

We offer the following core apprenticeship opportunities:

In collaboration with Cornwall College:

  • horticulture apprentice
  • events management apprentice

In collaboration with Truro and Penwith College

  • commis chef apprentice

You can read about these in more detail towards the bottom of this page.

Like the core apprenticeships these are also two-year placements and become part of the overall Eden Learning cohort. Each year there will be a small number of new apprenticeship placements added, which are publicised on our Current vacancies page.

Three of our apprentices were awarded Cornwall Apprentice of the Year prizes in 2016, and in the same year Eden Project won the Outstanding Commitment to Apprenticeships award at Cornwall’s Excellence in Training Awards.
