So what are Apprenticeships?

Apprenticeships are work-based leaning programmes that combine on and off-the-job training, designed by employers for employers, therefore tailored to meet the needs of each specific industry sector. An individual gains a nationally recognised qualification whilst working for an employer and the employer gets a work-ready or better skilled employee who can learn on the job.

Apprenticeships bring considerable value to organisations, employers, individuals and the economy. Businesses across the country are now increasingly realising the enormous benefits that Apprenticeships create, not only in terms of a highly skilled workforce but also by boosting productivity and staff retention. Research undertaken by the National Apprenticeships Service (NAS) shows they are an optimal way of training, developing and skilling people for the future, helping businesses secure a supply of people with the skills and qualities they need and which were often not available on the external job market.

To enrol onto an Apprenticeship in your chosen area, you must be in the role for you to be able to gather the evidence – an example being you would not be able to enrol onto the Management apprenticeship if you are not a manager.

How do Apprenticeships work?

Forget the classroom…

We only offer 100% vocational Apprenticeships meaning there is no day release, as our assessors will visit the work place once a month. We are totally commercially driven so work flexibly around your organisation and working patterns.

An Apprenticeships incorporates:

  • Diploma (NVQ)
  • Technical certificate relevant to the industry sector
  • Functional Skills such as numeracy, literacy and ICT although if you have GCSEs in these areas you may be exempt

Paper based or e-portfolio?

Actually, we do both. Some of our candidates choose to write up their work the traditional way in a written format however many choose to use our e-portfolio system. Our Onefile platform system allows candidates to log in anywhere any time to see their progress and communicate with their assessor. Photos, screen shots and voice discussions all can be used as evidence and contributes towards the qualification.

All Apprenticeships have an element of Employment Rights and Responsibilities (ERR) included, covering employment law that is there to protect employees and make sure everyone is treated fairly. Some also feature additional qualifications relevant to the role and Framework. Rather than just seeking to demonstrate competence in the particular job role, Apprenticeships are designed to give the apprentice the capabilities to progress their career, offering additional and long-term value to their employer.

All apprentices will be required to maintain a Log Book throughout their Apprenticeship. This log book will contain a record of time spent learning or training, both on and off-the-job, including those spent with a mentor in the workplace.
