There is no upper age limit on apprenticeships, so they are suitable for everyone. You may be looking to gain your first step on the career ladder or be looking for a career change. 20% of your contracted hours will be spent in some form of ‘off job learning’ activity. We will work with you and your line manager to set up a programme and agree a learning plan.

The apprenticeship lasts from 15-24 months depending on the type and level being undertaken. If you do not already have grade C or 4 (or suitable equivalent) or above in maths and English, you will be required to do this as part of your programme. Apprenticeships are also suitable for people who are already employed but require additional skills to meet the needs of their role e.g. promotion or change of job.

Apprentices do not contribute to the cost of their programme – your employer will either pay the full amount through their apprenticeship levy or contribute towards the cost with the remainder funded by the government.

Work Based Learning

You will need to be employed in the sector that you are looking to undertake your qualification in. Programmes are available at levels 2 through to 5 and are suitable for people wishing to develop their workplace skills. You may be required to attend some classroom sessions which could be outside of normal working hours. You will have a dedicated tutor who will visit you in the workplace, set you work and observe your workplace practice. Funding could be available to help pay for your course e.g. Advanced Learning Loan.


Work based learning opportunities are available in the following curriculum areas:
