What is an Apprenticeship?
An Apprenticeship allows you to combine work and study by mixing on-the-job learning with off-the-job training that involves classroom and practical based learning at a Training Provider.
You will be employed by a local employer to do a real job, earning while you learn. You will attend Derwent Training one day a week to complete your off-the-job training and be in work with your employer the other days of the week.
You will achieve skills, knowledge and behaviours that have been chosen to reflect your job role.
There are different levels when it comes to Apprenticeships:
- Intermediate – equivalent to five GCSE passes
- Advanced – equivalent to two A-Level passes
- Higher – equivalent to the first stages of Higher Education
