How an Apprenticeship works?

Apprentices generally do most of their learning on the job, with some off the job training at the College. They will work for you a minimum of 30 hours a week with some days release at College. The new apprentice is your employee and therefore comes under your HR policies and procedures. The apprenticeship is made up of an NVQ, Technical Certificate, functional skills and vocational training. You choose the pathway that suits your business needs, with support from the College.
