Apprenticeships

What are Apprenticeships?

An Apprenticeship programme is a work-based learning programme that is delivered via a blend of on and off-the-job training, whereby people can apply their skills in real work contexts. There are several elements that make up an Apprenticeship: competency elements are assessed on-the-job in the work place, and theory elements units are generally taught in an off-the-job setting on a day-release or block-release model.
