If you can’t wait to get started in your chosen career, and don’t want to choose between gaining qualifications and earning a salary, an Apprenticeship offers you the best of both worlds! Apprenticeships give you all the experience you need to move your career forward, and better prospects for the future. Apprenticeship completers’ salaries are on average 10% higher than non-completers (source: www.apprenticeships. org.uk).
Work, Earn & Learn
Being an Apprentice means you will be employed and earn a salary whilst working towards a nationally recognised NVQ qualification at Level 2 or Level 3 and a technical certificate. See the range of apprenticeships available through LMC below.
Your assessor will visit you in the workplace to observe you in your job role and to help you build a portfolio of evidence to prove your competence against industry standards. Once you have completed your Advanced Apprenticeship, you could choose to move on to a university level course or undertake further professional training.
You might attend College one day a week or on block release depending on your course. Your time in College will be to complete your assignments and study functional skills such as English, Maths and IT – which you will need for all jobs. As all our tutors are professionals in the fields they teach, they will be able to give you all the support and advice that you need.
