Are you aged 16 to 18?

Apprenticeships are extremely popular with school leavers who want to lay the foundations for a rewarding career within their chosen industry.
The main advantages of an Apprenticeship is that it allows the Apprentice to build up their skills and knowledge within the workplace, earn a wage while they learn, whilst also working towards a nationally recognised set of qualifications.

Are you aged 19-24 or 25+?

If you thought an Apprenticeships was just for school leavers then think again!

Adult Apprenticeships have been designed for those who are aged over the age of 19, so you’re never too old to benefit from further training and development.  The Adult Apprenticeship can open up a world of new possibilities in your career path giving you the opportunity to gain accredited recognition for your existing competencies and knowledge in your area of expertise.

What do the different levels mean?

There are currently three levels of apprenticeship:

  1. Intermediate Level Apprenticeships are equivalent to GCSE level (Level 2)
  2. Advanced Level Apprenticeships are equivalent to A level (Level 3)
  3. Higher Level Apprenticeships are equivalent to Higher National Certificate level (Level 4)

How does an Apprenticeships work?

Within the Apprenticeship framework most training is now work based assessed, however training can include day release or block release attendance to cover underpinning knowledge elements (subject to Apprenticeship framework requirements).

Our Apprentice’s receive ongoing support and encouragement from their Trainer/Assessor, both during the workplace visits and during day/block release sessions if required (subject to Apprenticeship Framework).  An Apprenticeship or an Advanced Apprenticeship enables the Apprentice to work towards achieving qualifications in their chosen specialism, relevant to their job role, which in turn will bring performance benefits back to the employer.

Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF)

Apprenticeships are vocational training which enables the Apprentice to gain the necessary skills to succeed in their chosen career path.  This involves a combination of on and off-the-job training.  Apprentices work alongside experienced staff to gain job-specific skills and receive role specific practical experience.

The Apprenticeship framework contains separately certified units.  Under the new QCF framework the Apprentice can select a wide range of relevant units, applicable to the chosen pathway offering more freedom, choice and flexibility in learning.

Functional/Core Skills Elements

English, Maths and ICT skills are important for any job.  The Apprentice will develop these along with the skills needed to improve learning, performance and how to work with others. Assessment will be through a combination of observations and portfolio based evidence.  Feedback from employers and Train’d Up delivery staff will also play an important part in helping to complete the Apprenticeship framework.
