Apprenticeships Apprenticeships combine paid work with theoretical learning They allow you to develop and apply the skills, knowledge and understanding required by employers in particular jobs. All apprenticeships include a number of qualifications including a competence based Certificate or Diploma, Functional Skills in English and maths and, sometimes, information technology. In some apprenticeships, job specific knowledge and skills are taught as a separate qualification. Apprenticeships also include awareness of employment rights and responsibilities as well as personal learning and thinking skills.

There are no specific entry requirements to become an apprentice; however an employer may specify entry requirements for a particular job role, which may include English and maths. Apprenticeships are available at three levels: An Intermediate Apprenticeship is ideal if you are in a first job or have changed jobs and need to learn new skills. You’ll work towards Level 2 qualifications (equivalent to 5 GCSEs at grades A* - C) and Level 1 Functional Skills. An Advanced Apprenticeship builds on the skills and knowledge achieved through experience or an Intermediate Apprenticeship. You’ll work towards Level 3 qualifications (equivalent to A Levels) and Level 2 Functional Skills. A Higher Apprenticeship is equivalent to a foundation degree and you will need to have relevant employment experience in order to begin one. The College can offer you support to find an apprenticeship through our Job Shop: www.jobshopsussex.blogspot.co.uk or you can use the apprenticeship vacancy system at www.apprenticeships.org.uk.

In 2011 the Government announced the introduction of loans to pay for education for those aged 24 and over. This means that Learners in FE and training will be able to access finance on the same basis as in higher education ‘In further education , individuals aged 24 years and above wishing to gain a level 3 qualification will be supported by the offer of a Government backed student loan to meet tuition costs. Loans will be made available to learners on an income contingent basis.’ 2012 is the last opportunity for adult learners to access government funding in order to subsidise the cost of learning. Sussex Downs is expecting that Loans will apply to all provision at level 3/4 for those aged 24 and over, including Access to HE courses as well as Advanced and Higher Level Apprenticeships Eligibility for these loans will be based on residency and the type of course being undertaken – not the financial position of the learner, their credit history or ability to repay. The loans will only be repaid once the learner has left the course and is earning more than £21,000 a year.
