Apprenticeships are a combination of work-based training and college education, giving you the opportunity to earn while you learn. Over the course of an apprenticeship, you will work to achieve Qualification and Credit Framework (QCF), Functional Skills and a Technical Certificate.
When you have completed your apprenticeship you will be a craftsperson with the necessary skills to start a career in your chosen trade.
In England and Wales, applicants should have, or expect to achieve GCSE grades A-C in Maths, English and ICT grades A-D or equivalent to GCSE or GNVQ intermediate.
If you do not have the necessary grades in GCSE's you can still apply for an apprenticeship and complete the qualification by doing additional Functional Skills training.
