Am I eligible?
Apprenticeships are open to anyone aged 16 or above, living in the UK and not in full-time education and employed. If you’re not a UK citizen, as long as you have the right to work in the UK and the Apprenticeship works within the lines of your visa, you can pursue an Apprenticeship.
There are four main Apprenticeship levels:
Intermediate Level Apprenticeships - Level 2 (equivalent to GCSEs)
Advanced Level Apprenticeships – Level 3 (equivalent to A levels)
Higher Apprenticeships – Levels 4, 5 (equivalent to Foundation degree and above)
Degree Apprenticeships – Levels 6, 7 (equivalent to Bachelor’s or Master’s Degree)
What qualifications do I need?
Level 2 (Intermediate) equivalent to GCSEs, you must be 16 years old or over. Employers may ask for a demonstrable interest in the area covered by the apprenticeship, as well as the ability to complete it.
Level 3 (Advanced) considered equivalent to A-levels, at this level, employers will typically seek GCSEs, usually three or more, particularly in English and maths. Relevant experience will also be useful.
Level 4 (Higher) considered equivalent to a foundation degree, employers will look for GCSEs and level 3 qualifications, such as A levels, or their equivalents, such as a BTEC. It’s at this point where experience in a relevant subject is also desired
