Most of your training is carried out at your place of work through an Individual Learning Plan. This is designed to provide you with the support, supervision and work-based mentoring you will need.

An assessor will work alongside you and your employer to monitor your progress against nationally recognised qualifications within your vocational area. This ensures that while your needs – and those of your employer – are being met at a local level, the qualifications you gain meet the highest national standards.

Assessors also visit you at your workplace to see how you are putting your developing skills into practice on the job.

Classes will be taught by experienced professionals who will ensure you develop your technical knowledge and key skills.

Career progression is excellent for apprentices, and over the course of their careers, those with an Apprenticeship earn on average, £100,000 more than those without. (A Cost-Benefit Analysis of Apprenticeships and Other Vocational Qualifications, University of Sheffield, 2007)
