As part of this apprenticeship, you will attend college one afternoon a week to complete the CIPD Level 3 qualification, which has eight modules designed to provide a broad range of knowledge and practical skills on which to build effective people management policies, procedures and practices in your organisation.

• The minimum requirement is GCSE grade 4 (or equivalent) in Maths and English.

• All applicants will be required to pass initial assessments in Maths, English and ICT.

Study, Assessment and Qualifications


• This apprenticeship takes approximately 12-18 months to complete.
• The knowledge, skills and behaviour elements will be assessed in the workplace using evidence to build a portfolio.
• Functional Skills, if required, will generally be delivered at one of our Wiltshire College campuses.
