Apprenticeships

An apprenticeship offers the opportunity to gain on the job training, a recognised qualification and the opportunity to earn whilst increasing future career opportunities.

There are over 250 different types of Apprenticeships available in the UK, offering over 1,400 job roles within a variety of industry sectors ranging from Agriculture and Horticulture to Childcare, Retail and Commercial Enterprise.

Apprenticeships generally fall into one of three categories:

Intermediate Level Apprenticeships
Apprentices work towards work-based learning qualifications such as a Level 2 Competence Qualification, Functional Skills and, in most cases, a relevant knowledge-based qualification.

Advanced Level Apprenticeships
Apprentices work towards work-based learning such as a Level 3 Competence Qualification, Functional Skills and, in most cases, a relevant knowledge based qualification.

Higher Apprenticeships
Apprentices work towards work-based learning qualifications such as a Level 4 Competence Qualification, Functional Skills and, in some cases, a knowledge-based qualification such as a Foundation Degree.
