What are the different levels of apprenticeships?
This is a good level for entry into a profession, especially if you have no previous qualifications in the sector. You will need to be able to demonstrate good levels of numeracy, literacy and the ability to work at the required standard. If you are on an apprenticeship and you do not have your GCSEs, grade A*- C or equivalent, we will be able to support you to achieve these at the same time as completing your level 2.
This is equivalent to an A Level qualification and is the next step having completed a level 2. For those who have already completed some studies in the sector, level 3 could be a starting point. However, this is not usually recommended as it is important that you have a thorough understanding of level 2 in order to extend the knowledge for level 3.
Equivalent to the first year in an undergraduate degree programme or an HND. For those who have completed their A levels and want an alternative to university. The apprenticeship programme may require additional work from this level upwards due to the complexity of the subject being studied.
Higher levels are equivalent to university level degrees and above. Level 5 apprenticeships are available at APT.
All apprenticeship training course costs are covered by the government for those aged 16 – 18. For those aged 19+, employers are asked to pay a contribution towards the cost of the training. There are different rates for each course so please call us for the current contribution amounts.
In addition to the course costs, awarding bodies may charge exam fees and, as you are taking professional qualifications, it is likely that membership fees will be required.
