APPRENTICESHIPS

Apprenticeships combine on-the-job training with classroom learning. They give you the opportunity to work alongside experienced staff in your own job role whilst teaching you the skills you need to develop in your chosen career.

What is an Apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships can take from one to four years to complete depending on the level you are working to achieve. This can range from the equivalent of a BTEC through to a Master’s Degree. Whichever Apprenticeship you choose, you will achieve a nationally recognised qualification that will open the door to greater opportunity.

English Apprenticeships: Our 2020 Vision

The Government has created a five-year plan to realise the full potential of English citizens. Apprenticeships play a key role in providing people of all ages with the necessary skills to succeed and they Government have committed to improve the quality and quantity of Apprenticeships in England to develop our skills as a nation. 

Their goal is for Apprenticeships to be considered as a high-quality and prestigious path to successful careers in all sectors of the economy. To do this, they have put the employers in the driving seat to design Apprenticeships to focus on the exact skills, knowledge and behaviours that are required of the workforce of the future.

What exactly does this mean?

Apprenticeship programmes have formerly been referred to as ‘Apprenticeship Frameworks’. To modify Apprenticeships, the Government has approved over 1000 employers to develop new ‘Apprentice Standards’ for their individual sectors.

Difference in the details…

End-Point Assessment

This is one of the biggest changes in the reform of Apprenticeships designed to improve quality.

Previously in Frameworks, the Apprentice was continuously assessed to receive their qualification. Now, once the Apprentice has completed their standard, they will be signed off by their employer as being ready for their End-Point Assessment. The Apprentice will be assessed by an independent organisation who will make sure they are fully competent and productive in their occupation.

There has been 250+ Standards published so far and many more in development.

Keep an eye on the Government website for any new Standards available for delivery

Why become an Apprentice?

Money

Earn while you learn

Many employees will pay you more as your skills develop.

Research shows that Apprentices earn on average around £77,000 more over their lifetime than other employees. This figures jumps to £117,000 for those who have completed an Advanced Level Apprenticeship… Not to mention the skills to give you the upper hand to those who have left education without these qualifications.

You will get at least 20 days of paid holiday each year plus bank holidays.

There’s a whole range of perks you could be in for too. As an Apprentice, you will receive the same benefits as other employees of the company. This could include pension schemes or private healthcare, complimentary breakfasts or company outings… However your company wishes to treat its employees, you’ll be a part of it too.

The Government are shaking up Apprenticeships as we know them, making now more than ever the best time to get involved. They are focused on improving the quality and quantity of Apprenticeships to make them a “high quality opportunity that delivers the skills, knowledge and behaviours that employers are looking for”.

Stand alone: “The existing Apprenticeship offer already delivers excellent benefits, but we wanted to go further to make it truly world-class, relevant and fit for purpose for the future” (English Apprenticeships: Our 2020 Vision)

Qualifications

Competency: You will need to achieve a Competency Qualification to start your Apprenticeship. This is to make sure you’re capable of achieving the skills, trade or occupation your Apprenticeship requires.

Technical: To show you have the necessary technical skills, knowledge and understanding of theoretical concepts, as well as knowledge and understanding of your chosen industry and market, you will need to achieve a Technical Knowledge Qualification.

Key Skills or Functional Skills: You will be assessed on either Key Skills (team-working, problem-solving, communication and technology) or Functional Skills (Maths, English, ICT) to help you achieve a standard level of literacy and numeracy

Include standalone fact: Did you know that 85% of Apprentices said their ability to do their job had improved, and 83% said their career prospects had improved?
