Why an apprenticeship?
An apprenticeship is an excellent way to earn whilst you learn – you can gain valuable knowledge and hands-on experience in a paid job, whilst also studying a relevant qualification. Based in the workplace for a minimum of 30 hours per week, apprentices will receive support and guidance from a College Tutor and Assessor to work through their qualification and build a portfolio ahead of their End Point Assessment. The End Point Assessment comprises three components which must be passed for the apprentice to be deemed competent. Apprentices must also have achieved Level 1 English and Maths prior to taking the end point assessment. For more information about Apprenticeships, click here.
Duration: 12-15 months (minimum).
