Information for Apprentices

An apprenticeship enables anyone aged 16 and over to learn a profession by learning knowledge and skills in the classroom and gaining practical experience at work.


Why do an apprenticeship at Nescot?

Here are a few ideas about what you could enjoy about becoming an apprentice. 

  • Earn while you learn. Like your colleagues, you’ll get paid a wage right from your first day. Like the other students at college, you’ll be getting all the training and help to make sure you get your qualifications. As an apprentice you'll get the best of both worlds. You'll get at least the minimum wage for your age, but many apprentices earn much more. You can find out more about the national minimum wage here 

  • Get the qualifications you need. Apprenticeships are highly focussed on helping you develop and achieve the skills, experience and qualifications employers want you to have. That means the college will also make sure your maths, English and IT skills are up to scratch

  • Learn at your own pace. Another benefit to on-the-job training is that you can take the time to make sure you understand something, and ask for help if you don’t. Your Nescot tutor will also be happy to help if you have any questions about what you’re learning at work.

  • Do a real job. Like your colleagues, you’ll get paid holidays and other benefits such as pension contributions. You’ll be working alongside full-time members of staff so you can get a sense of what the job will be like once you finish your training.

  • Great support. Again, you have the best of both worlds, with your employer and the college working together to help you get the skills and experience you need to gain your qualification.

  • Practical experience. By the time you finish your apprenticeship you’ll not only be qualified to work in the trade, you’ll also have an understanding of your role and your industry you can’t read in a book.

  • Great prospects. One you’ve finished your course you could stay with your company, perhaps with a promotion, or look for a full-time job elsewhere. Our apprentices tell us the practical experience they’ve had helps them stand out from other candidates when they apply for job, and makes them feel more confident too. You could also continue into Higher Education.

  • Transferable skills. Although your apprenticeship will be very focussed on your particular profession, you’ll also learn a lot of skills you’ll find useful in other industries and careers. For example, health and safety requirements, numeracy, time management and an understanding of how different roles and industries work together.
How can I apply for an apprenticeship at Nescot?

If you want to find out more about apprenticeships you can call the Advice and Guidance team on 020 8394 3038 and chat to them over the phone or make an appointment to come in to college and speak to someone in person.

When you’re ready to apply, you can follow the links on your chosen course to apply online. If you need any assistance applying please contact the Advice and Guidance team on the details above.

Once you’ve applied, the Advice and Guidance team will be in touch with you to arrange an interview with the Apprenticeships team where we will also talk to you about whether you have a job, and if you don’t how we can help to find one. You will also be able to talk about your other options, such as studying full-time.

Differences between an Apprenticeship and a full-time course

We are often asked by young people and parents about the differences between an Apprenticeship and a Full-time college course. This page highlights the key differences - and similarities.

How will my apprenticeship be assessed?

An apprenticeship is a framework of qualifications which takes place in the workplace and assesses your ability to undertake specific parts of the job.

An Apprenticeship is usually made up of at least 4 parts:

The competency qualification (NVQ)
This is specific to each course. A college assessor will visit you at work at various points during your course and observe your practical skills, judging you either as 'competent' or 'not competent'. If you are judged as not competent you'll be able to get some more practice before being assessed again.

The knowledge qualification (Technical certificate)
This is an academic assessment of your knowledge, but not all apprenticeships have this component. Assessment method is decided by the awarding body, and could include case studies, projects, practical skills tests and exams. 

Functional Skills (English, Maths and IT)
As part of your apprenticeship you are required to achieve a level of Maths, English and IT to enable you to meet the needs of employers. If you already have qualifications such as GCSEs or AS or A-Levels you may not need to do Functional Skills. Not all apprenticeships need you to have all three Functional Skills. You'll be assessed through online multiple choice exams. 

Employment right and responsibilities
Every apprentice must demonstrate they know and understand the rights of employers and employees under employment law. Teaching will cover topics including health and safety, equality and diversity and other contractual rights.

You may also have to take some sector-specific qualifications, but this will be explained at your interview.

Who pays for an apprenticeship, and what financial help is available?

If you’re aged 16 to 18 you won’t have to pay anything to become an apprentice because the Government will fund your apprenticeship. 

If you’re over 19 your employer will pay a contribution for your apprenticeship.

For more information about our Advanced Learning Loans, for students aged 24 and over, and other types of help available contact our Student Finance team for advice.

As an apprentice, you're legally entitled to earn at least the apprenticeship minimum wage for your age, although some people earn much more.

I’ve only been doing my apprenticeship for a few months, but I can already see a lot of changes to my work and my behaviour. I’ve got a lot more self-confidence and self-belief, and I'm more motivated. The course is helping me to understand the business context around me, and through that knowledge I’ve already been able to start making positive changes for my team and the organisation as a whole. It’s giving me the belief in myself that I can effect change, and that’s powerful.

We love having apprentices, because it’s a great way of continuing to improve our collective skills and expertise. Our apprentices can learn from the expertise of our experienced colleagues, and the whole team benefits from keeping up to date on the latest early years theories and principles. We see apprenticeships as a long-term way of developing staff.

We’re really serious about apprenticeships, because we see them as a great way to grow our business. We find that our apprentices are open-minded, full of enthusiasm and ready to learn, and we can teach them our way of doing things right from the beginning.
