Our website is dedicated to NVQ courses, but it’s worth mentioning a little about apprenticeships as a whole.



These are designed to help you succeed in a career by actually working and are usually for jobs which require a hands on approach. It wouldn’t make sense to become a plumber by only studying, because the job is so practical.apprenticeships nvq courses

As with all apprenticeships, you would need to study alongside working, which can be a challenge for some, but at least you will have a salary at the end of the month.

You will be trained by professionals with a structure programme, ensuring you are progressing well.

The requirements for an apprenticeship is as follows:

– you must be over 16

– you must be numerate

– you cannot be in full time education

– you must be a UK resident


Types of apprenticeships

Intermediate Apprenticeships (equivalent to five GCSEs or NVQ Level 2 courses)
Advanced Level Apprenticeships (equivalent to two A levels)
Higher Apprenticeships (leading to NVQ Level 4 qualifications)
