We offer three types of apprenticeships at the college. The level you take depends on your current experience or qualifications.
These level 2 apprenticeships are suitable for school leavers or those who have little or no experience working in a chosen area.
You'll work towards a work-based learning qualification, and functional skills such as maths, English and IT.
Intermediate Apprenticeships are equivalent to five GCSEs.
Once you complete an Intermediate Apprenticeship, you can progress to an advanced apprenticeship at level 3 or continue in employment.
These level 3 apprenticeships are suitable for school leavers, those who have completed a level 2 apprenticeship or existing employees who already have some experience in their job role.
You'll work towards a work-based learning qualification, such as level 3 competence qualifications, functional skills like English, maths and IT, and a relevant knowledge-based qualification.
Advanced Apprenticeships are equivalent to two A Levels.
Once you complete an advanced apprenticeship, you can progress to a higher apprenticeship at level 4, continue on to a Higher Education course, or move up the career ladder in employment.
These are levels 4-6. A Higher Apprenticeship is similar to other apprenticeships. You get to build up practical work experience while progressing academically to a Higher Education-level qualification.
Higher Apprenticeships offer existing apprentices, employees and school/college leavers a different route to university study.
