An Apprenticeship is a real job in a real working environment, combining on the job training in the workplace with formal training towards a recognised qualification gained at college.
Apprenticeships take between 1 and 4 years to complete and cover over 1500 job roles in a wide range of industries such as engineering to finance, childcare to food production, cookery, hairdressing and construction trades. An Apprentice will study a group of qualifications (called the Framework) including maths, English and ICT.
Whilst studying at College, Apprentices undertake a NVQ (National Vocational Qualification) that reflects their Apprenticeship. These are based on National Occupational Standards that describe the 'competencies' expected in any given job role. For example: someone working in an administrative office role may undertake an NVQ in Business & Administration. Advanced Apprenticeship qualifications may also attract UCAS points to enable progression on to higher level study.
