An Apprenticeship is a brilliant first step on the career ladder in many businesses. They are an excellent way of gaining nationally recognised qualifications whilst earning a wage, and combine practical ‘hands-on’ experience with academic knowledge.
You can now do apprenticeship training from Level 2 right up to degree level:
You will be employed and typically work 4 days a week and attend college one day a week. You will develop job specific skills and knowledge whilst in the workplace and be assigned to a college assessor to support you in gaining qualifications at the same time. You wage will be paid by your employer.
If you want to further your qualifications in the job you are currently in, you could ask your employer if this is possible. Apprenticeship training won’t cost your employer anything if you are between the ages of 16-18.
Don’t worry, there are a number of routes you can follow to help you get the required skills to do an Apprenticeship. Please come in to the college or call 01922 651129 and we can discuss your options.
All levels of Apprenticeships are made up of a number of elements known as a framework. This means you will get a range of qualifications and transferable skills as you progress through your Apprenticeship training.
