You'll need to be in full time employment for a minimum of 30 hours per week. Plus you'll need to ensure that you have had the chance to attend college during work hours as part of your paid employment.

You will ideally have achieved GCSEs grades A-E or equivalent. If you have an equivalent qualification, we will also take this into consideration, along with any industry experience you may have.

You'll need to attend an interview and complete an initial assessment. This is to help us understand what level you are currently working at, and to make sure that we arrange the right level programme to suit your individual needs.

Before applying for this course you must have an employer who would like to take you on as an apprentice.
