How does an apprenticeship work?
As an apprentice, you will be employed full-time. Usually, this will mean four days working with your employer and one day spent with us at college. Your time at work and college will include a mixture of practical work and training.
The type of learning you do will vary dependent on your apprenticeship role, but usually include:
- Workplace Learning: Your training will be delivered through various methods including the development of a portfolio, visits to your employer by your tutor and classroom sessions.
- College Learning: You will spend one day per week at college studying for your qualification. You will evidence your work via a portfolio and examinations.
- Assessment: Some apprenticeships include an assessment at the end, such as an exam.
