Entry Requirements

There are no specific entry requirements to study an Apprenticeship at Blackburn College. You will have an initial assessment when you come in for an interview, and this will show the level of English and maths qualifications, known as functional skills, that you will study alongside your apprenticeship.

Blackburn College will work with applicants to help find a suitable employer where possible. However we always advise anyone looking to undertake an apprenticeship to be actively seeking employment for themselves too.

How will I be assessed?

You will be assessed in one or more of the following ways:

  • Course work
  • Exams
  • Portfolio of evidence
  • Practical demonstration /assignment
  • Practical examination
  • Written examination
What can I do next?

The Intermediate Apprenticeship will give you the opportunity to progress onto an Advanced Apprenticeship. On successful completion of the Apprenticeship, natural progression would be to a higher level course or promotion within your employment to give you a broader range and quality of skills and understanding of the industry and its requirements.

Additional Apprenticeship Information

Apprentices should work for at least 30 hours per week and an Apprenticeship takes between one and five years to complete, depending upon the level of Apprenticeship and the industry sector. Most of the training is delivered in the workplace, so you will learn the skills you need to do the job well. The rest of the training is given by Blackburn College, either at the workplace, in College or via e-learning. The training is specifically tailored to ensure you develop the skills the employer wants, giving apprentices a real advantage in the workplace.

This means that apprentices not only have better long term salary prospects, but they also have excellent progression opportunities, whether looking to study further or climb the ranks within the workplace.
