Apprenticeships give learners the opportunity to earn while they learn, as they work alongside experienced staff members, acquiring job specific skills at their place of work and gain nationally recognised qualifications as they go. Apprenticeships also provide learners with the opportunity to progress onto higher level qualifications such as University or progress onto higher or degree level apprenticeships.
Depending on the apprenticeship programme, assessments and training are carried out in the workplace or via day release to the relevant Wiltshire College campus. Every apprentice will have a Wiltshire College assessor assigned to them who will carry out reviews and visit them in their workplace once every twelve weeks to ensure knowledge and competence is being developed within the apprentice’s job role.
