Apprenticeships

Project description

Apprenticeships in Wales are a way to earn a wage and work alongside experienced staff to gain job-specific skills. Coupled with additional training from a partner training provider, the individual will work towards nationally recognised qualifications.

Participants same benefits as other employees. As their skills develop, their pay will increase accordingly. They may also get additional money for essential books, clothing or equipment, or help with a disability.

An apprenticeship will give participants essential job-specific skills, knowledge and professional qualifications. They will work towards a work-based qualification which will be at least Level 2 from the Credit and Qualifications Framework for Wales (CQFW).

Participants will do a real job for a real employer and will be given targets to achieve. Regular progress checks are made to make sure that the employer is supporting the apprentice and that they are making progress.
