At Apprenticeship Connect, we offer a range of job-specific apprenticeship courses that will teach you highly-relevant knowledge and skills to help you get ahead in your chosen career. Whether you’re looking to start your career after leaving sixth-form/college, make a change and find a new job role, or if you’re planning to stop studying where you are currently to begin an apprenticeship, our courses are for you. You can also apply for an apprenticeship to support a job role you’re already employed in, they’re not just for those looking to start a new position. Our courses are developed by industry experienced curriculum experts to ensure the training we deliver is expertly tailored to the job role it has been designed to support, and our recruitment team can help you find the job role you need to support your training.
All our tutors have an employment background in the area they are supporting and real-world exposure to the job roles our courses are designed for. As a business, we invest heavily in CPD and our tutors receive regular training to ensure we are continually improving our service. Our tutors are all certified, DBS checked and quality checked to ensure you receive the very best training and support throughout the programme.
Our courses are available in London, Greater London, South England, Essex, The Midlands and the North West.

Apprenticeship frameworks are programmes of study that are created by an awarding body and the framework outlines a series of knowledge and competency learning outcomes that an apprentice must demonstrate in order to achieve their qualification certificate. Frameworks aim to teach apprentices sector-wide knowledge and all assessment for framework courses is facilitated by your apprentice’s tutor throughout the duration of their course.
Apprenticeship standards are developed by trailblazer groups made up of a minimum of 10 employers as well as professional bodies and trade associations, ensuring you study a curriculum that is tailored to a real-world job role. All our courses are approved by the Institute for Apprenticeships (IFA) and our curriculums are developed with consideration of industry-leading awarding body standards, guaranteeing you work towards an approved, professional certificate that is highly relevant in your chosen industry. Completing an apprenticeship will help you develop the knowledge and skills required to excel in your chosen career, providing a concrete foundation for future growth.

20% off-the-job training
As part of every apprenticeship course, learners are required to spend 20% of their contracted working hours undertaking off-the-job training. Off-the-job training is training that is outside of usual workplace duties, but it may still be conducted at your place of work. All time spent studying will be recorded within your personal training diary and your progress will be frequently monitored to ensure you are on track. The time you will need to spend studying is calculated using the following formula:
Total hours required = (contracted working hours per week x programme duration (in weeks)) x 0.2
Here’s an example:
Contracted hours per week:

APPRENTICESHIP ASSESSMENT METHODS
Throughout our courses, learner progress is assessed to determine knowledge and competency. Typical methods of gaining evidence to assess performance may include:
- On-the-job observations: your tutor will observe you carrying out day-to-day tasks, assessing your competency in the workplace
- Tasks: throughout the course, your tutor will set you a variety of tasks to be completed following your one-to-one sessions; these tasks will help you acquire the skills and knowledge required to complete the syllabus
- Witness testimonials: we will gather a variety of witness testimonials from your line manager to evidence your performance at work, demonstrating your ability
- Examinations: some of our courses also require learners to sit an examination to formally assess knowledge and competency. All apprenticeship standards contain mandatory End Point Assessments.
For more information on how each course is assessed please refer to the relevant course guide.
