Apprenticeships 

There has never been a better time to start an apprenticeship.

If you want to learn the trade of your choice and earn as you go, an apprenticeship might just be the thing for you.

  • Get paid & receive holiday leave
  • Get hands-on experience
  • Study for at least 20% of your working hours at Croydon College

Levels of apprenticeship

Apprenticeships are available at Intermediate, Advanced and Higher (degree) levels, covering more than 170 industries and 1,500 job roles. You can start an Apprenticeship at any level depending on your existing qualifications and experience. There are no tuition fees as training costs are funded by the government and your employer.

Depending on the level, some apprenticeships may:

require previous qualifications such as an English or maths GCSE

require extra training in the english or maths skills needed so you’re at the right level

At the end of your apprenticeship, you’ll achieve the equivalent education level. For example, if you complete a level 3 apprenticeship, you’ll achieve the equivalent of an A level.

Assessments:

During your apprenticeship, you’ll be assessed to make sure you’re achieving the knowledge, skills and behaviours needed for your chosen apprenticeship.

Apprenticeships also include an end-point assessment. It’s an assessment at the end of your apprenticeship to make sure you’re fully competent in your specific occupation. Your end-point assessment, known as an EPA, is carried out by an independent organisation known as an end-point assessment organisation (EPAO). It usually includes a practical demonstration of your skills as well as a discussion with an assessor that demonstrates your learning and your ability to do your chosen occupation.
