Entry Requirements

We offer apprenticeships to individuals living in England (the employer may be headquartered overseas).

The employer must agree that 20% of the apprentices working week will be dedicated to off-the-job training (workshops / research based activities / mentor sessions / professional events / time spent with sales team or customer service / projects and tasks that apply to the apprenticeship learning).

Apprentices must have Level 2 English and Maths, or be able to achieve these before taking the Apprenticeship End-Point Assessment. For those with an education, health and care plan, or a legacy statement, the apprenticeship's English and maths minimum requirement is Entry Level 3.

A British Sign Language (BSL) qualification is an alternative to the English qualification for those whose primary language is BSL.
