What is an Apprenticeship?

Our apprenticeships are available in a range of sectors matching all levels of experience and contain three elements...
National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) - NVQ’s are work-related qualifications based on national occupational standards that develop the practical skills and knowledge needed in a specific job. They are split into units and each unit is assessed. Assessments will be through the observation of practical work and the creation of a portfolio of evidence.
Functional Skills - Key skills are a range of essential skills required in everyday life and in the workplace. These include: Communication, Information Technology and Application of Numbers.
Technical Certificate - Technical certificates are aimed at developing your skills and knowledge in a particular aspect of your job.

What will an Apprenticeship do for you?

Apprenticeships give you the workplace experience and instruction to improve your performance and career prospects. Employers have a chance to train and mould you into valued and productive employee. Furthermore, they will appreciate the knowledge and expertise that you are gaining and feel a sense of loyalty to you and your career.

What comes after an Apprenticeship?
