Apprenticeships are work based training programmes which lead to nationally recognised qualifications. Apprentices learn on the job, building up knowledge and skills and earning money at the same time.

As an apprentice you will receive a salary, pension scheme, paid holidays and opportunities to progress your career.

  • Self-motivation
  • Good communication skills
  • Ability to use information and communication technology effectively
  • Ability to work as part of a team

Your commitment

As an apprentice you will be required to complete both an intermediate (level 2) and advanced (level 3) apprenticeship framework. 

Usually each level of the apprenticeship framework can be completed within a 12 month time frame.

A benefit of the apprenticeship framework, is that you can learn and complete elements at your own pace. You must be committed to completing both levels within the two year time frame.
