The average length of the apprenticeship lasts for 48 months, although previous qualifications that candidates may have obtained could reduce this. Training will encompass the completion of knowledge units delivered by our dedicated team of tutors, Functional Skills in English and Maths (dependant on GCSE results of candidates) and performance units on site with employers assessed by our team of training officers. Finally towards the end of the apprenticeship candidates will be entered into the industry’s own practical performance assessment, the AM2S End Point Assessment.
