Course Length is 65 weeks for all Apprenticeships and assessment is undertaken by occupationally competent and qualified assessors.

There are generally no laid down minimum entry requirements for Foundation/Modern Apprenticeships. However, apprentices are expected to successfully satisfy the following criteria:

  • In paid employment
  • Living or working in Wales.
  • Undertake skills assessment in literacy, numeracy and ICT
  • Employer agreement & understanding of Framework process.
  • Occupy a work role that is consistent with the level of qualification.
