Your interviewer will discuss with you what minimum level you will need to achieve at initial assessment.

You must be employed with a suitable employer and have all relevant contractual documentation in place prior to college enrolment. Employers will also set their own interview in addition to the college criteria.

Whilst your technical skills and knowledge will develop over the course of your Apprenticeship you will also need to demonstrate to potential employers that you possess the relevant skills and personal qualities and are willing to work and learn.

To begin this course you must be eligible to work within England or the European Economic Area (EEC) and be employed for a minimum of 30 hours in a relevant job role and be able to attend college on a part-time basis. Your employer must commit to supporting you throughout your apprenticeship and provide on-the-job learning as well as your college based off-the-job learning.
