ACHIEVING QUALIFICATIONS AND GAINING REAL WORK EXPERIENCE
Employers value real working skills when they are selecting new employees and promoting existing ones. So Apprentices who have worked for and achieved qualifications, as well as those who have gained work experience, will be in a good position to further their career.
Depending on their starting point, successful applicants will work towards an Apprenticeship Standard at Level 2, 3 or 5.
For technical qualifications, once they have achieved these awards they will be recognised as a qualified Vehicle Technician. They can then build on these awards through further training or education.
Skillnet will initially provide Apprentices with advice and guidance on how to start an Apprenticeship, but as they progress will support them in further learning so they can develop their career to become a Senior Technician or a Senior Manager.
Skillnet also delivers a range of non-technical qualifications. So whatever their interest, Skillnet offers training courses which will help your learners.
What Is An Apprenticeship?
An Apprenticeship is a student’s passport to an exciting new career. As well as gaining valuable qualifications, Apprentices will also gain practical skills that will help them build a successful long term career. Whether an Apprenticeship is technical or non-technical, they will also learn the life skills they’ll need in order to be relevant to today’s employers.
Why Choose an Apprenticeship?
GAIN SKILLS AND QUALIFICATIONS
Doing an Apprenticeship or an Advanced Apprenticeship involves “on-the-job" training. Apprentices build up knowledge and skills, gain qualifications and earn money all at the same time.
EARN WHILE THEY LEARN
Apprentices are trained in the skills they need to become a fully qualified member of staff. As they progress through their qualifications, they will become a more valuable employee and their earning abilities will increase accordingly.
