How Do Apprenticeships Work?

  • Here at LMC we offer job matching services for those still searching for an employer and we provide a range of training sessions from CV writing, confidence building and interview techniques. 
  • Once matched to your employer, you will begin working as a full-time member of staff in your workplace where you will receive visits from your assessor. You will be observed in your job role and helped to build a portfolio of evidence to prove your competence against industry standards. 
  • During your one day a week (or block release) at College you'll be completing assignments related to your job role whilst studying Functional Skills such as English and Maths. This will either help you gain qualifications in these areas, or, if you have already achieved an A*-C or 9-4 in your GCSE Maths and English, will allow you to maintain your skills in these subject areas.
