The Basics of an Apprenticeship

An apprenticeship is a type of work-based training programme that combines practical on-the-job-training with forma face- to face or online training.

During an apprenticeship, apprentices work alongside experienced colleagues to gain hands-on experience and gain practical skills. They also attend off-the-job training sessions to learn the theoretical aspects of their role and industry. At the end of the apprenticeship, apprentices receive a nationally recognised qualification which demonstrates and confirms they have gained the knowledge, skills and behaviours to perform their job effectively.

Each apprenticeship is made up of on and off the job training. On the job training helps an apprentice to develop specific skills within the workplace supported by a workplace mentor. Off the job training is directly relevant to the apprenticeship standard, it can cover practical training such as shadowing, mentoring, industry visits and attending tutorials or competitions.

All apprenticeship programmes require minimum levels of English and maths. Functional Skills training is delivered to those apprentices who did not achieve these qualifications at school.
