let's talk apprenticeships
Apprenticeships are work-based training programmes that are designed to help employers train people for specific job roles. At the same time, apprentices get a paying job with valuable training while they work towards a nationally recognised apprenticeship standard.
Who can be an apprentice?
Anyone in England aged 16 years old and above, whether employed, unemployed or leaving school. There is no upper age limit. There are no formal qualifications needed to do an apprenticeship however some employers may ask for GCSEs (A-C) in English, Maths and Science.
What qualification will I gain?
During your apprenticeship programme you will working towards a nationally recognised apprenticeship standard. This is accredited by relevant industry regulatory bodies and will help further you in your chosen career. Depending on the type of programme you enrol onto you may also have the chance to work towards QCF accredited diplomas and qualifications in Maths and English.
How long does an apprenticeship last?
The duration of an apprenticeship depends on the course being followed and the ability of the individual apprentice. An apprenticeship can take between one and four years to complete depending on the level of apprenticeship, the apprentice’s ability and the industry sector. As a guide, an Intermediate Level 2 apprenticeship usually takes around 12 to 18 months and an advanced Level 3 apprenticeship around 24 months.
How is it delivered?
The apprenticeship is a work-based qualification, which means that all of the training and assessment for the apprenticeship will be completed on-site. You will need to build an apprenticeship portfolio of evidence. Your regional trainer will observe you in the workplace and guide you on which pieces of work-based evidence are suitable for your portfolio.
Across the length of an apprenticeship you will be visited by a regional trainer every three to five weeks.
If you are completing a Standard towards the end of your apprenticeship you will have a meeting with your training and manager to determine whether you are ready for you End Point Assessment (EPA). The EPA is completed to assess the knowledge, skills and behaviours that you have learnt throughout the apprenticeship. You will practice parts of the EPA assessment throughout the apprenticeship and you will only take the final assessment when you feel ready. The content of the EPA will vary, depending on the course you are completing.
What type of apprenticeships are available?
There are three levels of Apprenticeship:
Level 2: Intermediate Level Apprenticeship (equivalent to five A* GCSEs)
Level 3: Advanced Level Apprenticeship (equivalent to two A-Levels)
Level 4, 5 and 6: Higher Apprenticeship (Foundation degree level)
