The Apprenticeship Programme

A practical approach is the key to the success of this programme – each apprentice is working with an employer and paid a salary whilst achieving a qualification.

Apprenticeships are available in Business Administration, Customer Service, Digital Marketing, Team Leading and Management.

All of our courses are suitable for any current employee wishing to improve their current skills as a way of personal development within your company.

An Apprenticeship standard consists of:

Diploma – Competence based element

Functional Skills – Maths, English and ICT

(if you have these subjects at GCSE A-E you will exempt from this part of the standard)

Employment rights and responsibilities

Personal Learning and Thinking Skills


Next Level offer apprenticeships and training in the following areas:

Business Administration
Customer Service
Team Leading/ Supervisor
Digital Marketer

Current Apprenticeship Standards we offer are at Level 2 and Level 3 with others at higher levels being developed.

A typical standard consists of:

  • The Skills, Knowledge and Behaviours an apprentice will need to have to carry out all aspects of their job. They develop transferable skills and gain credibility too
  • Functional Skills – designed to provide the essential elements of English and Mathematics that can be applied to real life contexts

Most Apprenticeships last between 12 and 24 months depending on the vocational area and the level although, if you have previous employment experience, this timescale could be shorter.

16-18 Apprenticeships are totally free for those with 49 or less employees. For Apprentices age 19+ or 16-18 if the employer has 50+ employees, a contribution is expected which will be discussed with you.

Employers who take on a 16-18 apprentice may also be entitled to a government grant.
