Outsource designs and tailors apprenticeship training programmes to suit employers and individual’s needs in relation to staff development and business improvement. These training solutions enhance skills and knowledge, increase motivation and profitability within an organisation, and achieve real business benefits. This is delivered through a fully embedded apprenticeship programme.

Apprenticeships can be delivered at different levels:
  • Intermediate Level Apprenticeships – Level 2 equivalent to GCSEs (12 months)
  • Advanced Level Apprenticeships – Level 3 equivalent to A-levels (12 to 15 months)
  • Higher Apprenticeships – Level 4 plus equivalent to Degree (15+ months)
An apprenticeship is made up of:
  • National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) or Diploma. This is competence skills based.
  • Technical certificate. This is the underpinning knowledge within each Apprenticeship, delivered via training workshops.
  • Functional Skills. These are core skills and training for Literacy Numeracy and ICT.
  • Individual Thinking and Learning Plan.

Apprenticeships will give you the opportunity to work for one of our employers, earn a real salary and gain a real qualification whilst gaining valuable workplace skills and experience. Whilst doing this apprentices will earn the Apprenticeship National Minimum Wage, however this rate does not apply to Higher Apprenticeships.

All apprentices should work for at least 30 hours a week, apart from in exceptional circumstances. After finishing, the majority of apprentices (85%) will stay in employment, with two-thirds (64%) staying with the same employer. A third (32%) of all former apprentices had received a promotion within 12 months of finishing, and of those in work, three quarters (75%) reported taking on more responsibility in their job. Employers think that qualified apprentices are 15% more employable than those with other qualifications. (Stats from the NAS website).
