What is an Apprenticeship?
Apprenticeships are all about earning while you learn and investing in your future. Apprentices work towards nationally recognised qualifications – attending classroom sessions to learn the technical knowledge and then spending the rest of their time developing technical skills and ‘on-the-job’ knowledge with their employer.
The skills and qualifications you achieve during an apprenticeship are transferable and can help you throughout your career. You’ll be supported throughout your apprenticeship and encouraged to take on varied tasks and pick up new skills, giving you the opportunity to prove yourself to your employer. Your employer will have spent time and money training you, so they’ll want to keep you and continue to invest in you in the future.

|Name||Level||Equivalent Education Level|

|Advanced||3||2 A Level Passes|
|Higher||4 5 6 and 7||Foundation Degree and Above|
