How long does the Qualification last?

The length of time depends on the qualification and framework undertaken.

Stand alone NVQ's have a timescale of 6 months.

Level 2 Apprenticeships have a timescale of 12 months and Level 3 Apprenticeships 18 months.

 

How much work will be involved for my staff?

The employer will not be faced with a large amount of work. The assessor will visit the learner on a monthly (Apprenticeship) or fortnightly (NVQ) basis to spend an hour with the learner working towards the evidence required for the qualification. This will take place at the workplace away from the learners main working station (The employer is not required to be present). Reviews will take place every 11 weeks for Apprentice's; to monitor progress of the qualification- this will be completed on the assessor’s monthly visit and the employer or supervisor should be present to comment on the review.

 

How often will the learner need to come off the job for training?

The Assessor will visit the learner in the workplace on a monthly (apprenticeship) or fortnightly (NVQ) basis for one hour. If the learner has not already achieved the required functional skills, they will also be required to have time away from the job to complete the exams. This will be discussed and arranged with the employer for each individual depending on requirements.

Employers with New Employees

 

 

How long does the Apprenticeship last?

The Apprenticeship will last a duration of 12 months.

On completion of the Level 2 Apprenticeship, there is an opportunity for learners to progress on to a level 3 qualification.

 

What costs are involved?

 

You will be expected to employ the apprentice and pay the NMW of £3.40 per hour. There will be no cost for the Apprenticeship training as training for 16-24 year olds is funded in full by the Skills Funding Agency.

 

How much work will be involved for my staff?

The employer should not be faced with any more work than that they would give any new employee. As a training company we can deal with both the pre-recruitment as well as the delivery of the apprenticeship programme. We advertise the vacancy, filter applications and conduct a pre-interview with those that meet the given criteria. We then send a shortlist of applicants to the employer who conducts their own interviews and has the final decision on the successful candidate. When the candidate is successful, the employer will be required to complete numerous enrolment documents; agreeing to the 12 month apprenticeship programme and choosing the units reflecting the job role to be undertaken.

 

When the learner starts their apprenticeship; an induction should be given to the learner and we expect each employer to appoint a day to day supervisor to the apprentice.

 

The assessor will visit the apprentice at the workplace on a monthly basis for one hour. However; the employer does not need to be present each visit. Every 11 weeks a learner review is completed and the employer will be expected to be involved in this.

 

How often will the apprentice need to come off the job for training?

 

The apprentice will be expected to be off the job to complete work towards their qualification on the monthly visits with their assessor.

 

If the learner has not already achieved the required functional skills, they will also be required to have time away from the job to complete the exams. This will be discussed and arranged with the employer for each individual depending on requirements.
