A Guide to Apprenticeships

How Apprenticeships Work

On an apprenticeship, you are both employed to do a real job whilst also studying for a formal qualification, either in a training centre or a college. By the end of your apprenticeship, you can progress onto the next apprenticeship level or will hopefully have developed enough to help you succeed in your chosen career.

Apprenticeship Levels

There are four different levels of apprenticeship:

  • Intermediate - equivalent to five good GCSE passes. Option at 16 for students who did not achieve 5 GCSE subjects.
  • Advanced - equivalent to two A Level passes. Option at 16 for those who wish to move onto higher qualifications but who do not wish to stay in full time education for A Levels or BTECs.
  • Higher - equivalent to the first stages of higher education, such as a foundation degree. Option at 18 after A Level study.
  • Degree - comparable to a Bachelors or Masters degree. Option at 18 after A Level study.
