What is a Modern Apprenticeship?
Modern Apprenticeships offer anyone aged over 16 paid employment combined with the opportunity to train for jobs across a wide range of sectors. They are an exciting way of gaining skills and qualifications that will help to start a career without having to study full-time. Modern Apprenticeships are supported by the Confederation of Business and Industry, the Trade Union Congress and a wide range of employers. All the Modern Apprenticeship frameworks are developed by the appropriate sector skills council in consultation with their industry. Modern Apprenticeship frameworks can also be used as the basis for training more established employees. Off the job learning usually takes place through colleges or training providers.
What do they offer?
All Modern Apprentice’s must be employed from the very start of their training / assessment and will receive a wage from their employer. They will then be given the chance to develop expertise and knowledge through on-the-job assessment, as well as gaining vital skills such as teamwork and problem solving. Many Modern Apprentices can also attend colleges or training centers to study the theory relating to their chosen occupation. Although each Modern Apprenticeship framework is specific to a particular industry or sector, they are all made up of:
The occupational SVQ/NVQs for the sector at Level 2 / 3 are the core of every framework. Some frameworks may specify progression routes, which allow apprentices to work towards a Level 2 initially, and then progress to the Level 3 and Level 4 SVQ.
Core Skills: Everyone, regardless of the job they are doing, needs certain skills which help them to become a more flexible employee, able to adapt to constantly changing work situations. These skills are known as Core Skills and are: Communication, Working With Others, Numeracy Problem Solving and Information Technology. To encourage employees’ development and broaden training, some Modern Apprenticeships also contain additional components that vary from industry to industry. They may include additional units from other SVQs, industry-specific qualifications, or academic qualifications such as Higher National Certificates and Diplomas.
