More information about this Course


Course Overview
Apprenticeships are nationally designed training programmes free for anybody aged 16 years and who have left education or are already in employment. They offer the opportunity to start a career through a combination of learning and work experience. Enthusiasm and a willingness to learn are critical, although full initial assessments and diagnostics are undertaken.

What Qualifications Or Experience Do I Need?
All candidates that apply for an apprenticeship programme are required to sit a literacy and numeracy assessment. These assessments determine your suitability for the programme. Previous qualifications, experience and attitude are all factors that also contribute towards gaining an apprenticeship. You will also discuss your current IT skills and qualifications with the assessor.

How Long Is The Course?
12 months

What Will I Learn?
health and safety compliance working safely at heights carrying out repairs to a building maintaining plumbing and drainage systems maintaining electrical distribution in a building maintaining plant, safety systems and equipment energy, environment and sustainability practices maintaining the outside of a building using specialist tools and equipment to carry out repairs

How Will I Learn?
Your Trainer/Assessor will visit you on a regular basis (every 4-6 weeks) in your workplace to help you complete your Apprenticeship programme. You will be expected to keep a portfolio of suitable work-based evidence you collect throughout your training. An Individual Learning Plan will guide you through the units with support and feedback from your trainer. Action plans will also be drawn up to advise you on what type of evidence to collect. Your Trainer/Assessor will be available throughout the week via email or phone to advise as necessary. You will be encouraged to submit evidence via email to your Trainer/Assessor.

How Will I Be Assessed?
There is an End Point Assessment which will need to be completed in order to acheive your apprenticeship qualification.
