Apprenticeships are good for providing flexible access to a high quality Level 3 skills programme, which acts as a real alternative to academic qualifications for those who prefer this style of learning and achievement. Apprenticeships are work-based training programmes: you work and get paid to gain industry qualifications. This course will combine the practical hands-on experience of the workplace with the knowledge and understanding gained through a College course.

The Apprenticeship covers complex diagnostics and repairs in all areas. This is supported by additional units required to make up the full qualification award: Health and Safety; Positive Working Relationships; Communication Level 2; Application of Number Level 2; and Information Technology Level 1. These areas are then supplemented by a variety of optional units that can tailor the award to the evidence most likely to occur in the trainees working environment.
