Entry Requirements

You will usually have completed the Level 2 Apprenticeship to progress on to the Advanced Apprenticeship. You need to have a job working in an business environment. Every employer is different and therefore the entry requirements can vary.

As a guide you ideally need GCSE grade 4 or above in English and Maths. However, we will work with you and provide additional support in order to help you achieve the functional skills element or GCSE requirements of the Apprenticeship.

Support can be delivered either prior to your Apprenticeship via a traineeship or during the delivery of your programme.

Facilities

You will have access to a Learning Resource Centre. There is a refectory in Victoria House.
