An intermediate apprenticeship is equivalent to five good GCSEs. Apprentices work towards technical skills qualifications at level 2, such as BTEC certificates and diplomas. In addition, apprentices are supported to develop English and Maths skills through the completion of Functional Skills qualifications. Qualifications combined with the skills learnt in the workplace allow apprentices to progress in their career and provide an opportunity to progress into an advanced apprenticeship.
Advanced apprenticeships are equivalent to two A levels. As with the intermediate apprenticeship, advanced apprentices undertake vocational qualifications while also learning valuable skills directly from their employment. If required apprentices will also have access to English and Maths skills development through the completion of Functional Skills qualifications. On the successful completion of the advanced apprenticeship, opportunities to progress onto Higher level apprentices are available.
