Who are The Apprentice and Training Partnership?

The ATP is a specialist Apprenticeship provider for candidates who ideally want to work for larger corporate companies. We provide first class apprenticeship training and are here to help you launch your career and reach your potential, working for large business.

What is an Apprenticeship?

An Apprenticeship is industry designed, on-the job training delivered by the employer and Learning Provider over a set period of time. At the end of the apprenticeship you achieve a nationally recognised vocational qualification plus additional English, Maths and ICT. For more information on the delivery and assessment of your chosen Apprenticeship career, please visit the Apprenticeship Type page.

How is the training delivered?

Training is delivered 100% in the workplace on-the-job and off-the-job with your tutor/assessor.

Who can do an Apprenticeship?

ANYONE! As long as you are over 16 and eligible to live and work in the UK. Age limits to apprenticeships have now been removed, so opportunities are available to everyone, including if you are employed already.

How much do I get paid?

One of the main benefits of choosing an apprenticeship is that you get paid whilst working towards your qualification. The amount you get paid depends on your age and existing qualifications, but employers typically pay wages between the National Minimum or Living Wages set by the government. Remember, if you are earning under £11,850 per annum, you won’t need to pay any tax on your wages!

How long does an apprenticeship take?

Each apprenticeship can be tailor-made to provide the greatest career benefit to you, whilst also taking in to consideration the needs of your employer. An apprenticeship can be as little as 1 year or can run for up to 5 years.

Apprenticeships also have the scope for you to complete more than one level during the course of your term depending on your chosen career path and relevant training.

If you have any questions on the length of your apprenticeship, your consultant will be happy to help or you can check on the apprenticeship opportunities page here.

What is required of me before I could apply for an apprenticeship?

  • You must be over 16 years old.
  • 5 GCSEs A-C including English and Maths are desired but not essential.
  • You have been a legal resident within the EU for a minimum of 3 years.

What do the Apprenticeship levels mean?

Apprenticeships come in different levels, based on your chosen career path and previous qualifications or training you have received. Many of our employers offer progression to complete more than one level during the course of the Apprenticeship.

Level 2 Intermediate Apprenticeship = 5 GCSE Grades A* – C
Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship = 2 A Levels
Level 4 Higher Apprenticeship = HNC or Diploma

As part of our service we will assess for you the right apprenticeship level to suit you personally.

Do I have to go to college?

No. All your vocational training will be delivered and assessed in the workplace. A designated tutor will actually visit you at work and fully support you throughout the course of your apprenticeship.

The tutor will meet you typically every 4-6 weeks to provide any training and complete any assessments. Any functional skills training and assessments will also be delivered at your place of work.

For more information on the delivery and assessment of your qualifications please visit the apprenticeship opportunities here.
