Earn whilst you learn with an Apprenticeship!
An apprenticeship is first and foremost a job. You will receive a wage, holiday allowance and on-the-job training to complete your qualification, alongside support from the College. In return you will offer your employer fresh ideas, commitment and dedication to learning skills and building your knowledge of their industry through work experience.
What will I study as an apprentice?
You will study a range of technical and functional units in the workplace alongside your employer. An assessor will visit you in the workplace and test your competence to ensure you are progressing your knowledge and developing your skills.
How much will I earn?
For those under 19 and those over 19 but in the first year of their Apprenticeship, the Government’s minimum wage rate is £3.50 per hour. However, this is only a minimum hourly rate and employers are encouraged to pay more where possible.
What qualifications do I need?
The ability to complete the programme and determination to succeed are the most important attributes for a potential apprentice. However, as a general guide to study a Level 2 Apprenticeship you’ll need 2 GCSEs at grades 9/A to 3/D or equivalent e.g. NVQ Level 1, or to study a Level 3 Apprenticeship you’ll typically need 5 GCSEs at grades 9/A to 3/D or equivalent e.g. NVQ Level 2.
