What is an Apprenticeship?
Apprenticeships are work-based training programmes designed around the needs of employers. An apprenticeship is an amazing way for you to carry on learning while getting valuable workplace experience. Apprentices do real jobs for real employers and you can earn as you learn. Employers all over the country recognise and value apprenticeships as they show that you’ve been trained in the skills they need!

We also offer Functional Skills in Maths, English and even ICT on some courses, which is great if you didn’t quite get the grades you were hoping for in your exams.
Who will support me during my apprenticeship?
Your Learning Coach is the person from TRAC who visits you. They will guide you through your apprenticeship to ensure that you get the most out of it.
Your Trainers may have weekly tutorials with you tailored to the course you’re following, depending on your apprenticeship.
The Learner Services Team are at the end of the phone to help with anything you might need.
How are Apprenticeships Achieved?
You will complete your apprenticeship after 12 months of training and assessment for a level 2 qualification and around 18 months for a level 3 qualification. These will include:
On-the-job training. Things you learn to do while you work with your employer either as part of your job or to support it. Your Learning Coach will test your knowledge, understanding and work-based performance to make sure you can show you are competent.
Assessment. You may be required to produce a portfolio, sit a test or do a demonstration in order to pass your apprenticeship. Your Learning Coach will be able to give you details about what will be involved in your assessment.
