Apprenticeship FAQ’s

Q1 I hate doing written work. Do I have to do loads of assignments?

A1. No. We tailor the course around you. We do a lot of our work via Dictaphone so you can tell us about your experiences and answer questions

Q2. Do I have to do Functional Skills? I have GCSE’s?

A2. If you have GCSE qualifications or equivalent we can check whether you are exempt from Functional Skills.

Q3. I hated Maths at School. How is this relevant to my qualification now?

A3. The Apprenticeship you are completing aims to look at all the skills you will need to be competent in your role. You will often use maths in your everyday talks and perhaps not realise it. We can help you develop your skills so that you become comfortable with maths and can continue to carry out your functions even if the calculator breaks!

Q4. I am really busy at work, how will I have time to complete the qualification?

A4. We are supported by your employer to be able to give you time to complete the course.

We visit you every month and look at how you like to work to design delivery around you.

A7. That depends on what you want to do.
