What is an apprenticeship?


An apprenticeship is a paid job with an accompanying learning

programme. The job must provide the employee with the opportunity to gain the knowledge, skills and behaviours needed to achieve the apprenticeship and carry out the role they are employed to do. It is a way for individuals to earn while they learn, gaining valuable skills and knowledge in a specific job role.



What are the prerequisites/entry criteria to do an apprenticeship?


Entry requirements depend on the sector, the apprenticeship

subject and prior qualifications, if an applicant has already

achieved A-levels, they may still be expected to start at

intermediate or advanced level as some sectors, such as

engineering, require you to build up occupational skills.



Am I too old to do an apprenticeship? Aren’t

apprenticeships for young people/school



Apprenticeships are for everyone, at any age. There is no upper age

limit for becoming an apprentice, and so it is open to anyone over

the age of 16 to develop their skills and capability in the workplace

in order to progress.



What is an apprenticeship standard?


It’s like a school syllabus or curriculum. It provides the criteria

against which you will be measured at end-point assessment.


Upon completion of the apprenticeship scheme you will receive a nationally recognised qualification and will be invited to attend a graduation ceremony.
