What exactly is an Apprenticeship?

An Apprenticeship is a high quality, work-based training programme for people who want to develop their prospects and career. What this basically means is that along side your job you will receive high quality training specifically tailored to suit your job role within your company and the industry that you are working in. But what it also gives you is the skills and knowledge to be able to develop and progress your career.


Who can do an Apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships are open to anyone aged 16 and over, living in England or Wales and not taking part in full-time education. Entry requirements are flexible because Apprenticeships aren’t just based on academic achievement; practical skills count in the area of work you’ve chosen because employers value dedication to work and keenness to learn.

Completing an Apprenticeship

An Apprenticeship is made up from:

  • An NVQ or QCF
  • A Technical Certificate (although some Apprenticeships do not have one)
  • Key Skills or Functional Skills

Your NVQ or QCF portfolio is like a work diary, it records your activities and experiences. Your portfolio is assessed to make sure you are competent. Your work will be assessed at your place of work. The Technical Certificate is theory based and links into some of the things you need to do in your NVQ. Key Skills or Functional Skills are similar to GCSEs however learning is focused around your industry and job role. Types of Key Skills or Functional Skills that you might have to complete are:

  • Application of Number (similar to Maths)
  • Communication (similar to English)
  • ICT
