How long will it take to qualify?
Apprenticeships and Advanced Apprenticeships take 12 -15 months each to complete.Traineeships last from 6 to 17 weeks and Study Programmes take around 37 weeks to complete but if you are ready to progress earlier we will help you find an Apprenticeship, job or further training.
Do I need any qualifications?
Before we can answer that question, we would need to know what course you want to enrol on. The good news is that you don’t need any qualifications for most of our Apprenticeships, Traineeships or Study Programmes, get in touch and we’ll talk about it and help get you onto the right course for you.
Will I have my own tutor?
You sure will. If on a Study Programme or Traineeship your Tutor will work with you to achieve the qualifications and get the skills you need to progress. On an apprenticeship your Learning Advisor will work with you and your employer to complete all elements of your framework and achieve your full Apprenticeship.
Is it distance learning or day release at college?
It isn’t distance learning but depending on what course you may attend college. An Apprenticeship is all in the workplace, a Traineeship is 4 days in the workplace and 1 day at college and a study programme is a mixture of both depending on what skills you have or need to progress.
Is it work based learning?
Yes, all of our courses are about developing you work based skills either in the workplace on an Apprenticeship, Traineeship or work placement or to prepare you for moving into an Apprenticeship or job.
Do I have to take exams at the end of the course?
In most cases no, depending on your starting point you may have some exams to take, but as most of the course is work based learning, you will develop a portfolio of evidence to show you have the knowledge and skills to do the job.
Can I afford it?
You better believe it. Most of our training courses are funded by the government so it won’t cost you a penny.
How will I know which course to choose?
It’s not always easy knowing which direction you want to take your life. That’s where our Learning Advisers come in. They will guide you through your training and assessment and together you will complete a Personal Learning Plan.
What if I don’t complete the course?
No one is going to give you any hassle if you decide the course isn’t for you. The down side is that you won’t qualify, which means you won’t get a certificate, which means you’ll find it harder to get a job.

- You can learn in a way that suits you and your lifestyle
- It costs nothing and you get paid while you train
- You’ll be better at your job and stand a better chance of promotion
