An apprenticeship is a genuine job with an accompanying assessment and skills development programme. It is a way for individuals to earn while they learn gaining valuable skills and knowledge in a specific job role. The apprentice gains this through a wide mix of learning in the workplace, formal off-the-job training and the opportunity to practice new skills in a real work environment.
CLC has developed methods of teaching to engage, challenge, inspire and encourage apprentices to learn from personal experience. We take a unique and innovative approach to teaching that helps learners connect with the subject matter they need to master. Through personalised and focussed teaching processes, our learners develop the tools they need for ongoing success in their fields of study. Our success depends on our attention to the needs of our apprentices and truly helping them achieve their goals.
There are three levels of apprenticeships available for those aged 16 and over:
Level 2 Apprenticeships – These provide the skills you need for your chosen career and allow entry to an Advanced Apprenticeship.
Level 3 Apprenticeships – To start this apprenticeship, you should ideally have five GCSEs (grade C or above) or have completed a Level 2 Intermediate Apprenticeship.
Level 4/5 Apprenticeships – These apprenticeships work towards qualifications such as a Level 4 Diploma and, in some cases, a knowledge-based qualification such as a Higher National Certificate or Diploma. Typical entry requirement is five GCSEs at grade C or above including English and maths.
