Completing an Apprenticeship course not only means you can earn money and get hands on practical work experience whilst you learn but it also increases your future employment prospects in your chosen career.

Training and assessment is flexible - provided in both the workplace, at the college and by 'blended learning', which includes e-learning from home.

The Level 2 Apprenticeship framework is equivalent to five GCSEs at grades A*-C, while the Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship is equivalent to two A Levels.
