An apprenticeship is a genuine job with an accompanying assessment and skills development programme. It is a way for individuals 16+ to earn while they learn, gaining valuable skills and knowledge in a specific job role. The apprentice gains this through a wide mix of learning in the workplace, formal off-the-job training and the opportunity to practise new skills in a real work environment. To complete the apprenticeship learning the apprentice completes an end point assessment at the end of the program. 

Off-the-job training is a statutory requirement for an English apprenticeship. It is training which is received by the apprentice, during the apprentice’s normal working hours, for the purpose of achieving the knowledge, skills and behaviours of the approved apprenticeship referenced in the apprenticeship agreement. By normal working hours we mean paid hours excluding overtime. It is not on-the-job training which is training received by the apprentice for the sole purpose of enabling the apprentice to perform the work for which they have been employed. By this we mean training that does not specifically link to the knowledge, skills and behaviours set out in the apprenticeship.

The apprentice must have a normal working contract with the employer for a minimum of 30 hours per week.

Businesses that offer apprenticeships view them as beneficial to their long-term success. Hiring an apprentice is a productive and effective way for any business to grow talent and develop a motivated, skilled and qualified workforce. As the economy recovers from the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, apprenticeships will be more important than ever in helping businesses to recruit the right people, and develop the skills they need to respond to conditions and grow – both now and in the long-term.

A traineeship is an education and training programme which incorporates work experience, preparing young people for their future careers by helping them to become ‘work ready’.

Designed for people aged 16 to 24 who have up to a L3 qualification who don’t yet have the appropriate skills or experience, traineeships provide the essential work preparation training, English, maths and work experience needed to secure an apprenticeship or employment.

Traineeships can be delivered in a number of sectors, our current traineeship provision is in the business sector and includes 6 weeks enhanced employability and functional skills leading to a 6 week work placement and apprenticeship.

To find out more and in what sectors we are currently delivering traineeships in please contact us on 0345 565 2656. We hold open days weekly in a Romford office and run courses every 6 weeks.
