Apprenticeship Training

 

Apprenticeships are nationally recognised qualifications developed by industry and relate to specific on-the-job training.

In England alone, more than 130,000 businesses employ 250,000 apprentices. Research shows that there are significant benefits for both employers and apprentices. Employers gain a highly motivated and loyal workforce that helps boost productivity and makes a positive difference to their business from day one, and individuals improve their skills and career prospects whilst continuing to learn and earn a wage.

All apprenticeships include the following elements:

  • A competency work-based qualification (NVQ or equivalent)
  • Functional Skills, which are transferable qualifications in ICT, English and maths.
  • A technical or knowledge-based qualification related to the NVQ.
  • A module on employment rights and responsibilities.
