We offer two types of apprenticeships at the college. Which level you undertake will depend upon your current qualifications or experience.
These level 2 apprenticeships are suitable for school leavers or those who have little or no experience working in a chosen area.
You will work towards a work-based learning qualification, such as level 2 competence qualifications, functional skills such as English, maths and IT and a relevant knowledge based qualification.
Intermediate apprenticeships are equivalent to five GCSEs.
On completion of 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 for those who are existing employees and already have some experience in their job role.
You will work towards a work-based learning qualification, such as level 3 competence qualifications, functional skills such as English, maths and IT and a relevant knowledge based qualification.
The advanced apprenticeships are equivalent to two A Levels.
On completion of an advanced apprenticeship, you can progress to a higher apprenticeship at level 4, continue on to a higher education course, or progress up the career ladder in employment.
These are levels 4 – 6. A Higher Apprenticeship is similar to other apprenticeships; you are able to build up practical work experience whilst progressing academically to a higher education level qualification.
Higher Apprenticeships offer existing apprentices, employees and school/college leavers a different route to university study.
