What is is an Apprenticeship/Apprentice?

An apprentice is an individual who undertakes a formalised and accredited training programme in a work-based environment lasting between one and four years. An apprenticeship is a nationally recognised training programme combining work with learning and training, both on and off the job. They combine the development of theoretical and practical experience gained from doing the job. There are different levels of apprenticeships:

  • Intermediate Level Apprenticeships - for those who are working towards, or have completed, NVQ Level 2.
  • Advanced Level Apprenticeships - for those who are working towards, or have completed, NVQ Level 3.
  • Higher Apprenticeships - for those who are working towards, or have completed, NVQ Level 4 or higher qualifications.

For further information, visit the National Apprenticeship Scheme website.
