Apprenticeships are a great way to learn and earn at the same time.
An apprenticeship is a combination of qualifications which can include:
- The Apprenticeship standard, in the discipline of choice and at the relevant level of study
- A technical or vendor qualification (if applicable), depending on your subject of study and level
- Skills, knowledge and behaviors that will help you whilst at work as an employed staff member
- Maths and English as functional skills, if not already achieved.
The apprenticeship will take between 1-4 years to complete, depending on the subject you are studying.
Do I need to be working?
To be an apprentice, you will need to work in the industry that you want for at least 30 hours per week.
You can be employed part time for a minimum of 16 hours per week. However this will extend the duration you have on the programme.
Your employer will need to support your 20% off the job training requirement and help you track achievement of this using the college software once you are enrolled. The 20% off the job training may include college attendance, evidencing workplace activity, attending external events and general tasks which are substantive new skills. Guidance on what does and doesn’t constitute towards off the job training will be given to you and your employer at the start of the programme.
