Types of Apprenticeships

There are 4 different Levels of Apprenticeships:

Intermediate Apprenticeships

An Intermediate Apprenticeship is equivalent to five good GCSE passes. The apprentice works towards work-based learning qualifications such as an NVQ Level 2, Key Skills and, in most cases, a relevant knowledge-based qualification such as a BTEC. These provide the skills required for the apprentice’s chosen career and allow entry to an Advanced Apprenticeship.

Advanced Apprenticeships

An Advanced Apprenticeship is equivalent to two A-level passes. Advanced apprentices work towards work-based learning qualifications such as an NVQ Level 3, Key Skills and, in most cases, a relevant knowledge-based certificate such as a BTEC. To start this programme, the applicant should ideally have five GCSEs at grade C or above or have completed an Intermediate Apprenticeship.

Higher Apprenticeships

Higher apprentices work towards work-based learning qualifications at Level 4 (Foundation Degree) and level 7(Professional Qualifications).

Degree Apprenticeships

Degree apprenticeships are similar to higher apprenticeships, but differ in that they provide an opportunity to gain a full bachelor's degree (Level 6) or master’s degree (Level 7).

With all Apprenticeships there is no cost for the training to the Apprentice.
