Am I eligible?
Apprenticeships are open to anyone 16 or above, living in the UK and not in full-time education. Onwards. If you have achieved degree-level qualifications or above, you will not be eligible for Apprenticeship funding.
What qualifications do I need?
As a general rule of thumb, employers expect you to have achieved GCSEs at grade 4 or C or above in English and maths, and/or A Levels. However, some employers may accept lower grades providing you can demonstrate the ability to work at that level.
What kind of support can I expect?
Alongside a structured training programme, you’ll be allocated a personal assessor to support you throughout your apprenticeship. As well as the work-related skills you need for your job, you’ll also work on your English and maths, which are essential to progress in any career.
How long does an Apprenticeship last?
Apprenticeships vary in length depending on the qualification, level, sector and your previous experience. This can be between one year for some frameworks and up to four years for more complex frameworks such as Engineering.
