Information for Employees
Apprenticeships are Work-based Learning programmes which incorporate several different qualifications, including an NVQ, into an overall framework.
Our assessors will come out to your workplace, at times negotiated with you, to ensure minimal disruption to your business, and your employee will attend college part-time to learn the theory underpinning the job. As an employer, you will receive regular updates on how your member of staff is progressing on the programme. Your employee will learn while working to build her or his knowledge and skills, gaining qualifications and experience. Apart from the NVQ, she or he may also complete a technical certificate and Key Skills qualifications.
What are the entry requirements?
You must have a job that matches your chosen Apprenticeship, and the enthusiasm and commitment to undertake learning while working full-time. Applicants must be employed for at least 30 hours per week (this can include time spent at college undertaking training) and live in England; they should not have a degree or be taking part in any other substantial government-funded programme.
All applicants must attend, and be successful at, an interview and guidance session with York College. Applicants for Children’s’ Care must provide references. Applicants for Plumbing, Electrical Installation and Construction Crafts will have to complete an aptitude test, and there may from time to time be similar tests for other subjects. Your employer must pass a York College workplace inspection to check that they meet Health and Safety requirements.
