Finding and Applying for Apprenticeships

Knowing where to look for information when thinking about what to do post-16 and post-18 can be difficult. On this page you will find details of how to find details about and apply for apprenticeships.

The first common question is "what types of apprenticeships are available?”

  Level Equivalent education level
Intermediate 2 GCSE
Advanced 3 A Levels or Extended Diploma
Higher 4,5,6 and 7 Foundation degree and above
Degree 6 and 7 Bachelor’s or master’s degree

Depending on the level you want to study, some apprenticeships may:

  • require previous qualifications such as an English or maths GCSE
  • give 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.
