What To Expect On An Apprenticeship Programme

If you’re looking for ways to improve your skills, knowledge and behaviours and to be more effective in your role then an Apprenticeship could be the perfect solution for you.

Apprenticeships are designed for every level of your organisation and start at GSCE Level 2 equivalent all the way up to Level 7 which is the equivalent of a Masters Degree.

They are practical, work-based development programmes designed around your needs and delivered at the right level for you.

Our apprenticeships are not just chalk and talk workshops.

Instead, they consist of a blended approach to development that include classroom, virtual, online, coaching and on-the-job learning.

All of these ensure that you will receive the relevant theory and practical to make a big difference in your performance.

Progress degree
The length of your apprenticeship will depend on a number of factors, such as the level of the apprenticeship, your chosen sector, employer requirements and your individual ability. That being said, apprenticeships will usually last between 1 and 6 years. Their length follows a basic framework.

There are 4 different levels of apprenticeship:

  • Intermediate – equivalent to 5 good GCSE passes. Typically last between 1 year and 18 months.
  • Advanced – equivalent to 2 A-level passes. Are usually studied over 2 years.
  • Higher – equivalent to the first stages of higher education, such as a foundation degree. 3 to 6 years to complete.
  • Degree – comparable to a Bachelors or Masters degree. 3 to 6 years to complete.


How Does It Work?

On an apprenticeship, you’re employed to do a real job whilst developing new skills, knowledge and behaviours, and studying for a formal qualification, usually for one day a week either at our training centres or your workplace, via virtual learning or learning in the work setting.

By the end of your apprenticeship, you’ll have gained the skills and knowledge needed to either succeed in your chosen career or progress onto the next apprenticeship level.

What you’ll learn depends on the role that you’re training for. However, apprentices in every role follow an approved study programme which will equip you with the techniques and strategies to be more successful in your role.
